Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Friday August 22, 2014

All eyes are on Jackson Hole, Whyoming, where Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will speak Friday morning. We get an international perspective. Plus, a new report from Zillow finds that renting isn't much better than buying when it comes to affordability. We look at why rents are so high and why some markets are more – or less – expensive. Then, it's rare to see an ad for a political candidate or a committee in major newspapers. Campaigns tend to spend most of their money on TV time and web advertisements.  But print ads are still an effective way to reach African-American voters, and as a result, they continue to be important sources of revenue for African-American newspapers. Finally, New York City's public advocate Thursday pushed for police to wear video cameras in high-crime areas. This in the wake of Ferguson, Missouri and the death in of a man in New York after police used an apparent choke hold. Cops and cameras is a complicated matter, including safeguarding the video data and the cost of managing it.
