Marketplace for Monday, November 5, 2012

Kai Ryssdal speaks with former Minnesota governor and former presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty about the election and his new role as the head of the Financial Services Roundtable. Estimates say a combined $6 billion has been spent on the presidential campaigns by President Obama and Mitt Romney. Meanwhile, the power outages in New York caused by Superstorm Sandy have left many that use food stamps helpless and hungry. We look at Sandy's effect on the holiday retail season. And the newest reality show on Bravo shines a light on Silicon Valley.
