Marketplace for Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Seven masterpieces were stolen from the Kunsthal museum in Rotterdam in a pre-dawn heist -- but does art theft pay off? Meanwhile, new housing construction is up. Nike announced its ending its contract with cyclist Lance Armstrong but will continue to support his cancer charity Livestrong. A grocery chain in Northern California that’s the target of a federal audit will soon find out which of its employees are undocumented and could be forced to fire them. Adriene Hill takes a further look into California's Prop 37 and the effect it would have on consumers if passed. And after last night's "binders full of women" comment, we take a look at this election's Internet memes.
