Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, August 7, 2013

Baby formula makers are in hot water in China again. After tainted baby formula scandals, the Chinese government has fined six companies $110 million in penalties for price fixing. Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa by Al Qaeda. We look at how that day changed the way the U.S. protects its embassies, and what it's costing taxpayers. And, as students across the country head back to school, a discussion of how public school families are being hit with fees for things like laptops and tablets.
