On today's show, more on Russia's President state of the union address. Plus, what if the key to improving health and lowering cost is right in front of us? The Peterson Center on Healthcare thinks so. And more of the Marketplace Wealth and Poverty Desk's exploration of the economic forces behind gentrification: the sudden influx of wealth in to a formerly low-income neighborhood. Some of the first signs of gentrification often appear when the cafes and trendy stores pop up. But as we find out, there can sometimes be more here than meets the eye.
