Marketplace Morning Report

Marketplace Morning Report for Friday, March 21, 2014

WalMart is launching a “black Friday” for gardening merchandise. We ask whether there really is enough demand for this kind of product at this time of year to create a genuine black Friday effect, and explore what WalMart’s move might do to the gardening retail world. Plus, the economic implications of proposed legislation on Sea World, San Diego's 10th largest tax payer. Also, as part of our series, City of Dreams, we will be looking at national policy issues through the eyes of local immigrants here in Los Angeles.
