Marketplace for Friday, December 2, 2011

The unemployment dropped to 8.6 percent in November. Will this trend continue or is this just a one time thing? Meanwhile, the Senate failed to pass a one-year extension of the payroll tax cut. The Walt Disney Company has raised its annual dividend by 50 percent. Businesses are warming up to getting green. We look at what it might take to rebrand the euro's tarnished image. And commentator Bethany McLean asks why Enron, 10 years after it filed for bankruptcy, is still the poster child for corporate corruption.
