Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Friday, February 24, 2012

Michael Jordan plays defense against a Chinese sportswear company. Romney's doing his best to sway voters to pick him in next week's primary, playing up his Michigan roots and pushing hard for a law that would get rid of mandatory-union-membership in union shops. And host Jeremy Hobson wraps up a week in Michigan by taking a closer look at two places in Detroit with the same name, but very different stories.
