Marketplace Morning Report®

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, March 26, 2014

An annual report examining health in the U.S. count-by-county looked for the first time at factors like housing, transportation and food insecurity. We explain the links between these factors and overall health. Plus, with the IPO of King Digital, we take a look at the company's strategy of making dozens of games that are free to download but have in-game costs. Also, a conversation with philanthropist George Soros about his new book, "The Tragedy of the European Union." And these days, you may be asking, "Where's the beef"? A 10% increase in sales of chicken over beef indicates that consumers are not only put off by the high prices of red meat, but also the health benefits of staying away.
