Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, March 27, 2014

With President Obama's meeting with Pope Francis in Vatican City, we'll take a look at where they disagree – contraception, abortion, same-sex marriage – as well as their shared ground on fighting poverty and inequality. Plus, with Microsoft's Office suite will available for iPad, we explain the potential impact in the market, and the risks Microsoft runs with this move. Also, we look at the GDP’s strengths and weaknesses as an economic indicator and how an organization called Measure of America aims to track well-being. We'll also be taking a look at the efforts to stretch the tech industry into Santa Cruz, which is home to over 20,000 people who commute to the Silicon Valley for work.
