And bird flu is sending the price of eggs higher, but oddly enough, it’s sending chicken prices lower. We'll talk about why. Plus, what happens when most of your city workers can’t afford to live in the city? We take a closer look at Marin County in California, where the high median home price forces many workers to commute from elsewhere.
