Marketplace for Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Central Banks in several countries have agreed to lower their interest rates to make it easier for Europe to borrow. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte talks about how the European financial crisis is impacting the Netherlands. Commentator Robert Reich says the U.S. needs to extend the payroll tax to create a healthier economy. The U.S. is exporting more oil than it imports for the first time in more than 60 years. Some established manufacturing companies are trying to look more like startups. And the Millionaire Matchmakers talk about how finding the perfect job is a lot like finding Mr. or Mrs. Right.
