The International Monetary Fund has cut its forecast for global economic growth to 2.9 percent for 2013. This comes as central bankers, finance ministers, and development pros from around the world gather in Washington for the annual meeting of the World Bank and IMF gathering today. First it was mobile phone service with no commitment, no contract. Then it was phone upgrades every six months. What some see as the also-ran of American wireless, T-Mobile, is having a new bout of iconoclasm. Last night the company that likes to call itself the "un-carrier" surprised the industry with a plan that lets people use data and text in foreign countries at no extra charge. T-Mobile CEO John Legere sits down with Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccaio.
