  • One thing we know for certain about the crisis we’re in – the economic pain will not be shared equally. Wealth can determine everything from the quality of healthcare people can access to how well they can ride out a job loss, and racial inequality is baked into the system. The average white household today has nearly ten times the wealth of the average black household, and one reason for that goes back almost a century to redlining – the practice of restricting lending in certain neighborhoods based on race. Redlining has been illegal for decades, but as Marketplace’s Amy Scott reports, an exhibit traveling around the country aims to show how racist housing policies continue to shape our economy today.

  • Kai takes a historical look at the economic tipping points during the Great Depression to ask what can we learn and what we should be looking for during the next few month.
  • For patients who fall critically ill from COVID-19, access to a ventilator could be a matter of life or death. Britain’s state-run National Health Service, however, is dangerously short of the devices. There are only a couple of manufacturers based in Britain, and foreign suppliers are now focused totally on their own domestic markets. From London, Marketplace’s Stephen Beard reports on how the British government has appealed to the UK’s engineering industry to help: to retool and start making this vital equipment in huge quantities.
