The U.S. and EU kick off trade talks today, but there may be an unpleasant odor hanging over negotiations. European leaders are still angry over revelations the U.S. has been spying on EU members. Furor aside, a trade deal between the two sides could increase trans-Atlantic commerce by $100 billion dollars a year.

The BBC’s Andrew Walker joins Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio from London with the latest.
