Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday June 23, 2014

70 years ago the GI Bill created the GED, which allowed returning soldiers to get their high school diplomas without having to go back to a high school classroom. We look at the changing profiles of GED recipients, and investigate into how the value of the GED has changed so drastically since then. Also, as the World Cup enters into another week, we highlight some of the new technology making its debut on the field in Brazil. And after we talk to Zach Greenberg, the author of a new book about Michael Jackson's strengths as a businessman and how he revolutionized the way that musicians are able to monetize their fame.
