Investors growing more risk averse

Got whiplash yet? So you may remember about a week ago JPMorgan was out a couple billion bucks. This week that morphed into $3 billion. The stock market spent most of the week on the slide, thanks to a euro crisis that just. Will. Not. End. Money senior producer and Whiteboard host Paddy Hirsch analyzes what led to the JPMorgan loss and what it means for the average investors. CBS/MoneyWatch's Jill Schlesinger also helps out with the explanations and gives us insight on the attitudes in the bank industry.

We also help an organic farmer in Oklahoma figure out investments that'll yield the highest returns while being very safe and socially responsible. That's a tough set of criteria and Jill's answer may not bring him millions, but it'll do.
