Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Friday, July 13, 2012

It's second-quarter earnings day for JP Morgan Chase. Profit number aside, many are focused on how big a trading loss the bank suffered from the so-called 'whale' in its London office. Europe's economic crisis is hammering the euro's value, but bad news for Europe is great for American travelers. And this weekend, Santa Fe, New Mexico, hosts the world's largest folk art market. Artisans from Afghanistan to Peru come to sell their crafts -- but they can also get business training to take them to the next level.
