Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Next time you take out your smart phone for a game of Angry Birds or to check Facebook, there's a chance you're not the only one who's watching. Documents leaked by Edward Snowden show that the British and American governments could be tracking data from some mobile apps. Tonight, President Obama delivers his State of the Union address. He's said it's unlikely he's going to get a whole lot of support from Congress on anything. So, if President Obama goes it alone, what could he do? One other thing you may hear from the president tonight is about the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The a global trade agreement that covers 12 countries and 40 percent of the world's economy is a high priority for Obama and an important part of his Asia-Pacific policy. But if you thought the fight over NAFTA was bruising, this could be a lot tougher.
