Marketplace for Monday May 26, 2014

One in three babies are born by Cesarian section in the U.S., but the rates of C-sections vary widely by state, and even by hospital. Gigi Douban reports on how a call by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology for fewer C-sections may play out. Meanwhile, Facebook has just announced new gender options. Users can now change their profiles to identify as transgender, transsexual, trans-feminine and many more; there are a lot of options. And for companies, making the choice to recognize, and, even showcase different lifestyles is becoming popular. And, Marketplace guest host David Gura talks about beer and business with Steve Hindy, co-founder of The Brooklyn Brewery.
