Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

The problems with a declining birth rate

May 17, 2018

(Markets Edition) The birthrate in America just keeps going down. We talked to Diane Swonk, the chief economist at the accounting and consulting firm Grant Thornton, about the economic troubles this will cause for the U.S. down the road. Afterwards, we'll look at how Britain is placing limits on some fixed-odds betting machines, and then discuss how the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to OK legal sports will impact New Jersey.
