Marketplace Morning Report®

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, January 21, 2013

After a hostage crisis at a gas production complex in Algeria resulted in the deaths of dozens of hostages and militants over the weekend, a terror group is now claiming responsibility for the attack, and is pledging more violence. We take a look at how the unrest in Algeria will impact energy production in North Africa. Newly released transcripts from the Federal Reserve are giving the public a rare look at how the nation's central bank reacted in the early days of the financial crisis in 2007. And, as President Obama takes his second Oath of Office today, we look at education in America, and the opportunities it provides, with the help of some people born on past Inauguration Days.
