Marketplace Morning Report for Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner wades into the European debt crisis today, and will urge heavily indebted countries in Europe to avoid "draconian" government budget cuts that could risk another global recession. Also on the show, President Obama has raised more money than all the GOP contenders, but the incumbent president has been notably lagging in attracting money from wealthy contributors. And, media data firm Nielsen has started tracking online and TV viewership in 15,000 households to help advertisers understand how much time consumers spend with their ad on and offline.
