Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday August 14, 2014

Speaking of GDP, here at Marketplace, we talk a lot about different economic indicators employment numbers, retail sales, consumer spending, etc. Here's one that caught our interest, though. Bankruptcies are down -- at their lowest level since 2008. That sounds like good news, right? Not so.
