"Marketplace" Presents: The Consumer Arms Race

Get a taste of radio's irreverent and insightful coverage of money, business, and economic news that influences your life. What is the cost of the consumer economy in the culture of “more is better”? More and more essentials of life are for sale: good health, good education, safe neighborhoods. And that means a competition in which people spend more to stay in the same relative place. Can we afford our consumer economy? Join "Marketplace" host Kai Ryssdal; "Marketplace" reporters Krissy Clark, Adriene Hill, and Scott Tong; along with special guests for an exploration of the intersection between commerce, consumption, and competition. It’s an evening of radio on stage, with sound-rich features, interviews, and engaging storytelling.
