In an unprecedented collaboration, the BBC World Service and American Public Media's Marketplace put financial institutions and consumers under the microscope. Join the BBC World Service's Business Daily's Justin Rowlatt and Marketplace's Kai Ryssdal as they come together from both sides of the Atlantic for a thoughtful, probing discussion on the true nature of our banks and the role of consumers in creating a healthy financial system on the eve of the Presidential election. 

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.
