Marketplace Marketplace

Marketplace for Tuesday, November 22, 2011

GDP in the U.S. is lower than originally projected, but it might not be a bad thing. Barbara Ehrenreich talks about work in the second of our weeklong series on writers and the economy. Mitchell Hartman continues his series on the housing boom and bust in California's Inland Empire. North Dakota has a housing problem, too -- not enough residences. L.A. city officials are trying to barter with Occupy protesters to get them off of the City Hall lawn. And we hear about the latest uprisings in Egypt.
