Marketplace for Thursday, September 5, 2013

Two stories about chickens in today's show: First, how it makes economic sense to ship chicken carcasses to China for processing into nuggets that are then shipped back to the U.S. The question is key because the Agriculture Department just announced that it has approved four Chinese chicken processors to ship meat to the U.S. Also, the McDonald's Dollar Menu -- including chicken nuggets -- is … evolving.  The company is testing a version that includes items priced at  $1, $2 and even $5. Finally, we get a first look at some pricing of health care under the Obamacare overhaul.
