Marketplace for Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Egyptians will vote today and tomorrow in the first presidential elections since Hosni Mubark was removed from office. Meanwhile, it looks like the U.S. headed for another debt ceiling debate. Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon is under fire for some questionable personal expenses. Studios and movie theaters are fighting over exactly who should shoulder the cost of the glasses for 3-D movies. And in our new series Money Matters, we hear about people who bought shares of Facebook not for the investment, but as a way to teach their kids about how Wall Street works.
