For Marketplace, Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has agreed to resign if the eurozone reforms are passed. We took a look at its high debt and interest. There have been a number of protests in the Middle East this year but the ones in wealthier countries haven’t lasted as long. Here in the U.S., Occupy Wall Street protesters are preparing for the cold winter ahead. Harrisburg, Penn., is facing default. Charitable donations may lose their tax deductions. The GOP presidential candidates are set to have another debate — another chance for them to squabble and gain some extra exposure. And here are the songs we played:
