Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday June 5, 2014

Tech billionaire Steve Ballmer is paying an eye-watering $2 billion for the LA Clippers. Whether or not the Clippers are actually worth this amount, how is this going to affect the price-tag of the Lakers and other NBA teams? Plus, the final vote to confirm Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the HHS secretary is expected tomorrow. We look at the importance of the Affordable Care Act's outreach to Latinos, who are not only a big proportion of the uninsured, but also part of the healthy young segment the ACA needs. Then, we talk to Olga Kazhan about her article in the Atlantic about how vocal fry impacts women in the workplace. And later, we talk to Fortune’s Allan Sloan about the issue of tax inversion and the tax revenue that’s lost when companies go off-shore. Allan will also discuss the S&P 500’s openness to off-shore companies, as well as the Fortune 500’s aversion to them.
