Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, December 18, 2013
FedEx releases its profits this morning. FedEx and other shipping companies are hoping for a bounce this holiday season. Among the factors playing in their favor is the calendar -- just 26 days -- because Thanksgiving is so close to Christmas, this year. FedEx hopes people might have to rely on speedier and pricier shipping options. And, as we look at the future of coal this week, one group that's not much of a fan of the coal industry right now are Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest. Fifty-seven tribes in the region have come together to oppose plans to build coal export terminals in Oregon and Washington State. Marketplace Morning Report looks at one tribe's fight in Washington against what could become the largest coal export terminal in North America.
