Playlist: Europe’s troubles continue, Oct-snow-ber hits the Northeast
Posted by Mary Dooe
For Marketplace Morning Report, Mon., Oct. 31, 2011
Japan’s central bank said today if it’s going to help Europe with its debt problem, Europe first has to help itself. The rescue package Europe put together last week is relying on foreign help — a lot of it Japan and China. Well there are still millions without power in the Northeast this morning, after that Octsnowber storm that hit over the weekend. Passengers on a JetBlue plane were stranded on a tarmac in Hartford, Conn. for 7 hours. Many flights to New York’s airports were diverted to Hartford, overwhelming the airport’s infrastructure. The troubled securities firm MF Global is reportedly in a desperate hunt for a buyer this morning. The company, which is run by former New Jersey Senator and Governor Jon Corzine, saw its stock price and credit rating collapse last week, thanks to heavy bets on European debt.
