Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, February 19, 2014

The political leaders of the U.S., Mexico, and Canada are meeting this week in Mexico for their regular summit, sometimes called the meeting of the "Three Amigos." One of the things expected to come out of this year's event is a new program to encourage business travel by relaxing some border controls.

Cities are ranked against New York, which is the base city with an index score of 100. So how do the world's cities stack up on quality of life? What counts as good living? And why is the Big Apple the baseline?
