Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, January 23, 2014

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Right now, the place to buy stock in Fiat-Chrysler is in Milan, Italy. But Bloomberg is reporting that Fiat's boss is about to ask his board to move its primary stock business to the New York Stock Exchange. American Airlines and US Airways are taking another step towards merging into a single airline. Each will sell tickets on certain flights operated by the other carrier starting today. It's a practice called codesharing, which makes your partner's flights look like your own. And, over the last few days, people in Michoacan, in southwestern Mexico, took matters into their own hands and pushed out members of a powerful drug cartel from their community.
