Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, May 3, 2012

After last year's tsunami in Japan, millions of tons of debris floated across the Pacific, some of it reaching all the way to the West Coast of the U.S. Now, someone is going to have to pay to clean it up. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner are in China today and some of the focus is on on a blind Chinese dissident who took refuge at the U.S. embassy in Beijing. And this election year, you're going to hear a lot about government regulations, and whether they're too tough or not tough enough.
