Does anyone actually want a Facebook portal?

Yale economist William Nordhaus, along with New York University’s Paul Romer, received the Nobel Prize in economics Monday. We look at the consequences of putting Nordhaus’ research on the economic impact of climate change to policy. Then, Romer's work connecting technological innovation to economic growth has been influential across the globe, but perhaps not as influential as he would like. Also on today's show, we speak with Marketplace Tech host Molly Wood about Facebook’s newest gadget release amid users’ security concerns. And the U.S. Census Bureau needs to hire hundreds of thousands of workers to complete the 2020 census. But with a tight labor market, that may be a lot harder than it was back in 2010.
