Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

04/18/2017: What would you do if the government gave you free money?

UnitedContinental posted strong quarterly profits yesterday. Now United CEO Oscar Munoz is set to brief investors this morning, following an incident in which a passenger was forcibly removed from one of the company's flights. We'll look at whether the company can bounce back from the controversy. Afterwards, we'll talk about a new kind of debt collector that might be coming after people who haven't paid their taxes. And finally, we'll discuss a new experiment in Silicon Valley where researchers plan to give people free money (seriously).
