Marketplace for Friday, September 20, 2013

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The EPA announced emission rules that will require new coal-burning plants to cut carbon-dioxide pollution by 40 percent. The industry says no can do, but in fact utilities are way ahead of the EPA in cutting coal emissions in general, by closing old plants and not building new ones. We’re about to hear a lot about the debt ceiling and the threat of a government shutdown.  Krissy Clark is our guide as we head back down the budget war road. And finally, Nielsen, the counter of all things media, will start counting TV viewership on tablets and smartphones in fall 2014.
