Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, December 22, 2011

In the U.S., Gross Domestic Product revisions are out today, and the hope is that the number will keep improving as long as problems in Europe, and Washington, don't stunt that growth. In one North Carolina town, local business play nice to help each other out during recession. The Lone Star State loses as many as half a billion trees in 2011, and that's not including the wildfires. And in this week's Attitude Check, we look at how Americans are really feeling about the potential payroll tax cut extension.
