A report identifies colleges where most students drop out, and many of those have so much debt they're unable to repay it. For-profit colleges are prominent, but there are “regular” colleges too. Then, we talk to Fortune Magazine’s Allan Sloan about tobacco bonds and how they are impacting the tax payers of New Jersey. After, we talk to CEO and Founder of the Grommet, Jules Pieri, about the inaugural Maker Faire that President Obama is hosting at the White House tomorrow to encourage people to support the maker movement.
