Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, May 28, 2012

On Memorial Day, we take a look at ways to support the other 1 percent -- the less-than-1 percent of Americans who serve in uniform and those who have died in the line of duty. While low-fare airlines are struggling to make money in the United States and Europe, airports across Southeast Asia have never been busier thanks in large part to budget carriers. With so many Americans off work and out of school, retailers are trying to turn Memorial Day into a shopping holiday. Lastly, we check in with a couple economists and ask them to predict the future.
