Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Friday, October 26, 2012

China is blocking access to the New York Times website because the Times is featuring an expose on Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and his family's accumulation of $2.7 billion in wealth. The election is just 11 days away and out on the stump, the candidate are talking jobs, taxes, and entitlements. One thing we haven't heard much about this election season is climate change. Voters in Chicago will decide on election day whether the city can negotiate for cheaper electricity rates. Merger talks between Random House and Penguin could be the first sign of a big shake-up for the publishing industry.
