Marketplace for Friday, October 12, 2012

The Nobel committee has awarded the Peace Prize to none other than the European Union. Meanwhile in the U.S., Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has signed a bill that will allow controversial fracking on several Pennsylvania college campuses. Amy Scott reports on a school that's opened up an on-campus vision center for students. Some craft micro-brewers are changing the stigma of going from glass to aluminum. And the vice presidential candidates debated jobs and 6 percent unemployment last night in their debate. We get the website Rap Genius to help us decode what Joe Biden and Paul Ryan said.
