Marketplace for Friday, August 3, 2012

The monthly jobs numbers are out and they show we're doing the same amount of work but with a much smaller workforce. Tess Vigeland talks to Michael Kocher from the International Rescue Committee about where all the thousands of Syrian refugees are fleeing. The drought is still parching parts of the country, and with a government relief package, taxpayers may end up paying for the major losses in crops.  Clothing designer Lacoste just hit a milestone: 10 million likes on Facebook. And we say hello to Silicon Valley's summer camp for techies.
