For Marketplace Morning Report, Thursday, September 2, 2010

Got a pet? Is s/he environmentally friendly? Our sustainability reporter Adriene Hill lets us know which pets are the most and least friendly to the planet. Going away from the cute and cuddly: veggies in urban gardens are getting stolen, the cause of last May's flash crash is being explored, high unemployment may be here to stay, and how is Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke holding up? Plus, we look at how health reform may impact small businesses, a new Chinese law that will require mobile phone users to get registered, and why curbing executive pay may have hit a roadblock. Plus, check out our slideshow on the Chilean mining rescue and then look at the songs we played:
