Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, September 5, 2013

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The economic summit is supposed to address global economic concerns and, hopefully, give some confidence to the global markets. What is the cost if the talks instead are hijacked by tensions between the U.S. and Russia over Syria and Snowden. The Mexican Senate passes education reform as teachers continue to protest in the country. And as New York Fashion Week moves more and more into the digital realm, will social media take away some of the spectacle that fashion week has become?
