Marketplace Morning Report

Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Airing on Wednesday, May 27, 2015: Severe floods in Texas have cost lives, inflicted major damage on the region economically and washed away hundreds of homes. We look at the economic cost, and the situation of affected homeowners who wonder whether their insurance will cover their losses. Plus, with the latest deadline in talks between the USPS and one of its unions looming Wednesday, we check on the biggest elephant in the room: the Postal Service’s pension obligations. Next: we talk to Hal Brill about his latest book, "The Resilient Investor."
