Marketplace's new Wealth & Poverty Desk

Feb 27, 2012

Marketplace officially launches a groundbreaking new national desk dedicated to one of the most critical socio-economic issues of our time. The Wealth & Poverty Desk's five-person editorial team, led by Senior Editor Celeste Wesson, will explore the concentration of wealth in the U.S. and its causes and consequences for the economy and society. The desk aims to increase public awareness of the growing income and wealth gap by creating a thoughtful conversation among Americans from different classes, races, and walks of life.

Marketplace can be heard weekday evenings at 7:00 on Public Radio 89.5-1. Marketplace Money is heard on Saturdays at 11:00 am and Mondays at noon on Public Radio 89.5-1.
