Airing on Monday, June 8, 2015: A group of seven leaders are gathered to discuss Russia and Ukraine; tensions over Greece's financial situation; and as Marketplace's Tracey Samuelson tells us, trade. And car dealers are fighting Tesla’s efforts to open direct-sale stores, and it's not just because of Tesla. Weakening state franchise laws could open the door to consolidation of the nation’s fragmented dealerships. More on that. Plus, with issues of racial bias in policing galvanizing protesters and motivating Justice Department investigations, we ask whether having more police officers of color would actually improve policing in minority communities.
