Marketplace for Thursday, August 29, 2013

We look at why the Obama administration is working with debit cards on the roll out of the federal health care overhaul. And the weather in India can impact your pocketbook. A poor onion crop in that country has sent onion prices skyrocketing there -- and the ripple effect of the onion shortage is being felt across the globe.
