Marketplace for Friday, August 24, 2012

Lance Armstrong is losing his titles, but he and his sponsors are betting his brand will endure. Tess Vigeland talks to journalist Nicholas Shaxson about the hundreds of pages of Mitt Romney's financial documents that Gawker published yesterday. Excitement is drumming up for the national political conventions, but what's even more rewarding is what happens when they end -- the campaign money. Looks like the economy has helped cause the U.S. birthrate to drop to its lowest in 25 years. And our Payday series concludes with a naked discussion amongst friends about salaries, and what's enough to make you happy.
