A former Goldman Sachs trader known as "Fabulous Fab" has been found liable in a massive mortgage fraud case.  A look at this historic win for U.S. financial regulators. U.S. manufacturing jobs have risen to their highest level in two years. But do they pay enough for a decent living? Also, the Affordable Care Act has the potential to reshape not just how we live our lives, but also a huge piece of the American economy. We tell the story of reform from Camden, N.J. And stories on a Postal Service program offering discounts on samples, the MLB considering a lifelong ban for Alex Rodriguez, and why Fortune's Leigh Gallagher says the American Dream is moving out of the suburbs.
