Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday, September 26, 2012

More protests are expected in Spain today after some big demonstrations last night. There's outrage over a new round of budget cuts as Spain tries to avoid becoming the next Greece. The office supply chain Staples has announced plans for a complete overhaul. The company appears to be taking a page out of Best Buy's playbook. And Marina Von Neumann Whitman is the daughter of the famous mathematician, John von Neuman. But she managed to beat the odds and come out from her father's shadow, going on to serve as the first woman ever on the White House Council of Economic Advisers.
