Marketplace for Friday, February 24, 2012

The number of Americans with a college education is on the rise, but how do we compare to the rest of the world? Bloomingdale's introduces a loyalty card for its shoppers. We look at the future for minority workers in the postal service as it continues to downsize. The state of Louisiana continues to attract multi-million-dollar film productions thanks to tax credit incentives. And Kai Ryssdal talks to digital marketing executive Ian Shafer about Generation C -- hyper-connected Americans.
