Marketplace Morning Report for Monday, November 11, 2013

In the Philippines, the response to the massive typhoon could be hampered by disaster relief budgets already drained by other recent catastrophes, including a massive 7.2 earthquake there last month. The United Nations, the U.S., and E.U. are among those in the international community sending immediate help as well as gearing up for longer-term financial assistance. After two decades of bloodshed, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the main rebel group in the country are expected to sign a peace deal today. Could this be the development needed to put this country, rich in natural resources, on a path toward economic stability? And, it's Veteran's Day. As we honor people serving the country in the military, it would be nice if we could also get them their paychecks regularly and without hassle -- and here's where advances in mobile banking come in.
