Women’s labor force participation rate hits an all-time high

The labor force participation rate for “prime working age” women has peaked. That’s a pretty big deal after a dramatic drop of working women — particularly mothers — during the pandemic. Today, we’ll look at what brought women back to the workforce so quickly. We’ll also outline what happens now that we’ve reached a debt limit deal and tally the costs of catalytic converter thefts.

Job openings rose a lot…but so did unemployment

When the government has to play catch-up in the bond market

Once Congress finalizes a debt limit deal, we’re in the clear, right? Well, the Treasury Department will have to raise roughly $1 trillion in the next three to six months by selling bonds to replenish its accounts and pay for the “extraordinary measures” it’s been taking. So what’s that mean for the economy? Also, a potential end to the “great resignation” and a conversation about tipping robots.

It’s not my fault I was poor

We follow up with a listener and former guest who wrote to us about her struggle with class anxiety during our first season. We’ll also share an excerpt of Marketplace’s latest podcast, “Financially Inclined,” featuring an interview with Reema discussing emotions around money.

Caught between a job and homelessness

Part of the advice normally prescribed as a “cure” to homelessness is getting a job. But what happens when the work people do still isn’t enough to afford a place to live? A new study from the Economic Roundtable nonprofit delves into the surprisingly-high rate of homelessness amongst California fast food workers. Plus, businesses in some resort towns are offering subsidies for landlords to rent to local workers.

A bipartisan vote sends the debt deal to the Senate

After a bipartisan vote on the debt deal in the House of Representatives last night, the compromise legislation looks to be on its way to becoming law.

Plus, the BBC’s Nkechi Ogbonna reports from Nigeria, where a planned end to oil subsidies has led to a rush in people stocking up at fuel depots.

AI is already taking jobs from some voice actors

Powerful new artificial intelligence tools have a lot of people worried about being replaced. Remie Michelle Clarke, a voiceover artist in Dublin, says she’s already seeing it. Michelle Clarke did some voiceover work for Microsoft a few years ago, and since then, her voice has been licensed to third-party companies, including one called Revoicer, an AI company selling text-to-speech voices. Marketplace’s Meghan McCarty Carino spoke with Michelle Clarke about the growing threat this technology poses to her businesses and the experience hearing her own voice doing gigs she didn’t book.

Extraordinary measures for extraordinary times

Since the U.S. brushed up against its debt limit in January, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has been stretching the government’s money as far as possible using “extraordinary measures” to buy time for Congress. One listener thought to ask: How, exactly, does that work? And how long could they last? We’ll get into it and answer more of your questions about where the funds for military assistance to Ukraine come from and why the Federal Reserve’s strategy to bring down inflation may come with unwanted side effects. Plus, a little self-care talk.

Would the debt deal’s cuts draw blood?

The debt limit deal brokered in Washington would reduce government spending by about $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

Plus, wage-price spiral … what wage-price spiral?

In some places, living unsheltered could become a crime

There are moves afoot in numerous states and cities to criminalize elements of homelessness, including living in encampments.

Marketplace’s Meghan McCarty Carino spoke to Mitch Prinstein, the APA’s chief science officer, about social media’s effects on identity, relationships, sleep and more.

Where’s the (lab-grown) beef?

Growing beef or chicken in a lab out of a few tiny animal cells may sound like something out of a sci-fi novel, but with nearly $3 billion invested in the lab-grown meat industry, that future may already be near. On the show today, we talk with food tech journalist Larissa Zimberoff about how meat is grown in a lab, why companies are banking on it as a potential climate change solution, and the challenges that lie ahead for the industry. Plus, is lab-grown food here to stay?

Finding Your Place: How unaffordable housing drives homelessness

If there’s been a defining trend in American cities thus far in the 21st century, it’s been the rise of housing prices to astronomical levels. That’s also meant a huge increase in the number of people who aren’t able to afford a place to live, according to Gregg Colburn, a professor at the University of Washington who co-authored the book “Homelessness Is a Housing Problem: How Structural Factors Explain U.S. Patterns.” We spoke with him as part of our new “Finding Your Place” series exploring the reality of homelessness in America.

AI could boost productivity, and also inequality

Generative AI may help some workers become better and faster at their jobs, which could ultimately boost wages. That’s good news for workers, right?

President Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced this weekend that they had struck an agreement on raising the nation’s debt ceiling in exchange for spending cuts over the next two years.

From the BBC World Service: Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan has secured another five years in power. We look at what went on during Sunday’s election. It’s the 70th anniversary of the first successful ascent of Mount Everest, but you’ll need a lot of cash to follow in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.

Safe and sound: how EVs tell you they’re coming

There’s a federal regulation requiring “quiet vehicles” — meaning hybrid and electric cars — to emit synthetic sounds. That’s because without noisy combustion engines, EVs produce no sound of their own at speeds under about 18 mph, which would make them dangerous to other road users, particularly visually impaired pedestrians. So those sounds are added on. We wanted to know why these cars sound the way they do, so we asked Danielle Venne. She’s the executive creative director at Made Music Studio and helped design the sound made by Nissan’s Leaf.

Inflation is still here, folks

The debt limit is the big economic news story of the day, but yes, you *still need to keep an eye on inflation. The personal consumption expenditures price index, a measure of consumer spending, ticked up last month. That’s bad news if you were hoping interest rates, the tool the Federal Reserve uses to fight inflation, might come down soon. And, some musing on the nature of consequences: Three members of the far-right militia known as the Oath Keepers were recently sentenced to prison for their part in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Plus, we’ll play a round of Half Full/Half Empty!

Why don’t we know when the U.S. will run out of money?

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that a government debt default could happen “potentially as early as June 1.” Kinda wishy-washy, huh?

In most cities, you’re better off renting than buying a place

The conventional wisdom of old said that more often than not, buying a place to live is cheaper than renting. That’s no longer the case except for four major U.S. cities — Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland and Houston. We look at how housing prices have gotten so high and why they’re likely to stay elevated. Plus, the AI boom is driving up demand for microchips, but there are still barriers the industry faces like geopolitical tensions and supply chains.

Germany’s economy slips into recession as consumers hold back

From the BBC World Service: A recession is commonly defined as the economy shrinking in two successive quarters — that’s just what’s happened to Germany, mainly because higher energy prices have hit household budgets and that’s put the brakes on spending. It’s Europe’s biggest economy, so what’s the wider impact? Plus, the International Monetary Fund has approved a multi-billion dollar loan for Ivory Coast. And, we hear from rural Spain where a plan is being considered to help subsidize bars in depopulated areas which have become vital community hubs in a country where 90% of the population lives in urban areas.
