(Markets Edition) The 10-year bond yield is actually up 3.19 percent, one of several signs that the U.S. economy is gaining strength. We talk to economist Diane Swonk for more. In healthcare news, a Kaiser Family Foundation survey has found that employers are paying more for each employee’s health plans. We look at how the employees are also paying more. Finally, financial expert Beth Kobliner helps parents find ways to handle the FAFSA, the grueling financial aid application process for college. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group, (gaincapital.com), Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com) and PayPal (paypal.com).
