Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Could a vacancy tax help Oakland with homelessness?

October 11, 2018

(Markets Edition) We take a look at inflation numbers in light of the Consumer Price Index’s rise by a tenth of a percent last month. Then we talk about pollution from a seemingly unlikely source: meat. Large meat processors have released more pollution than acceptable in streams and rivers according to a new study. Also, Oakland is seeing a rise in homelessness possibly due to climbing rents, so a tax on vacant properties is being discussed. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group, (gaincapital.com), Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.com) and PayPal (paypal.com). (10/11/2018)
