Today, we learned that the U.S. is getting a demotion in a ranking of well-being across the globe from the U.N. Internationally, we look at how herders in Inner Mongolia are coping with a changing landscape.

For months in Europe, people have been protesting government austerity cuts. One of the proposals governments are considering is raising the retirement age. We look at what would happen if the U.S. did the same. We also look at where the U.S. economy is headed, whether politics will change foreclosure investigations, and your reaction to some of our stories.

Kai talks to Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and finally, does the color of your trash bag matter to you? Here’s what we played:
