First up, more on news that the British pound is down 1.3 percent to both the U.S. dollar and the Euro right now. That is a sharp drop for a currency that had been running very strong, and the reason has a lot to do with a referendum in Scotland next month. And New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will hold a summit today on the future of Atlantic City. We take a look at what impact the closings of three of its big casinos will have on the city’s future, and how the downfall of the gambling mecca is a little bit of history repeating itself.
