Marketplace Morning Report®

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Friday June 6, 2014

The Labor Department issues the May jobs figures today, but has normality returned? What do the latest figures say about jobseekers returning to the economy and better job openings? Can we now expect healthy job creation every month going forward? We also look at wage growth and the fact that things are still far behind where they would have been if the Great Recession had not cost so many jobs. Plus, California chrome goes for horseracing's Triple Crown this weekend at the Belmont Stakes, and even if he wins, the horse won't likely sell for the top rates (up to $60M) we've seen in the past. Then, the planning on the release of Hillary Clinton’s fifth (yes, fifth) book has been downright military grade. There’s not just the steady drip, drip, drip of excerpts and leaks, there’s the Twitter account, and all the appearances in the works. We look at the way books like Clinton’s, Geithner’s and Bernanke’s (forthcoming) are marketed. And after, Professor Sebastian Saiegh joins us to talk about what soccer can teach us about the benefits of organizational diversity.
