When we report on a big merger, Marketplace regular and Washington Post columnist Allan Sloan swings into action, trying to think like a corporate tax attorney to tease out how merging companies are trying to play the great tax game. This time around, it’s a merger between two big companies that make equipment to control buildings and factories.  

Click the media player above to hear Allan Sloan in conversation with Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
