Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, April 21, 2014

We've heard a lot, lately, about rising income inequality. Some people at the top of the heap are paid way more than the "99 percent." New research shows that inequality in wages isn't the only thing growing. There's also a growing divide in wealth. Plus, Netflix earnings are out on Monday. The earnings come on the heels of  a study that shows more people are cutting off their cable cord and turning to instant video streaming services like Netflix. And finally, a Christian movie made for a puny $1.5 million has quietly brought in more than $40 million at the box office with little promotion. More and more theaters across the country are adding "God's Not Dead," which has mostly been a top five movie, coming out ahead of far more expensive and lavishly promoted rivals. We look at the modern history of targeting Christians as a box office moneymaker, from "Passion of the Christ" to now.
