Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, December 23, 2013

Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
Apple begins this week with a big Christmas gift -- 760 million potential new customers. That's how many people subscribe to China Mobile, the world's largest mobile phone carrier. The two companies have struck a deal to sell iPhones to China Mobile's customers. And, earlier this month, the Air Force said 18 of its new Joint Strike Fighter jets will be based in Burlington, Vermont. The community there is divided over whether that's a good thing, and both sides are using economic arguments to make their points.
