Say 'meow' to the newest Monopoly piece

From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Thursday:  

  • In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on International Trade for December.
  • Chain stores are slated to report January sales data.
  • And if you’ve acquired the board game Monopoly recently, you may have noticed that the iron token is no longer a game piece. Hasbro announced its replacement by a cat token one year ago. Really, what’s likely to bankrupt you faster? Vet bills or pressed clothes?
