Marketplace's new Wealth & Poverty Desk
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.
