Episode Description 
The NCAA announced sanctions against Penn State University today, and they could greatly affect the surrounding economy for years to come. Londoners are paying taxes to cover the Olympics bill at a time when a recession is hurting the economy. If you feel inundated by all your friends' status updates and tweets, commentator Beth Teitell has a solution for the social media overload. Tess Vigeland talks to former TARP Inspector General Neil Barofsky about his new tell-all book on the U.S. bailout. And for our series Food for 9 Billion, Sam Eaton reports from Vietnam, where fish farmers are trying to make the process more sustainable.
