Marketplace for Friday, February 3, 2012

Ahead of the Nevada caucus on Saturday, Kai Ryssdal hosts the show from Las Vegas. He takes an inside look at the foreclosure crisis that's overtaken the state, and talks to Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh about the company's move to Vegas' downtown. Plus, we look at the recent influx of Latinos hoping to open businesses in Sin City. Nationwide, the January jobs report shows the unemployment rate has dropped to 8.3 percent. And The Susan G.
