Marketplace for Monday, November 12, 2012

The United States is on track to pass Saudi Arabia and become the largest oil producer by 2020. Greece has passed an austerity budget for 2013. Thousands are still left homeless after Sandy and officials are trying to find apartments and homes to place them in. The Department of Veterans Affairs has set a goal to end veteran homelessness by 2015, and help homeless veterans access disability payments. We take a look at advertisements warning of the upcoming fiscal cliff, and talk to an actual cliff diver about what it's like to jump off.
