Marketplace for Thursday, December 20, 2012

Now that the New York Stock Exchange has been bought, what does it mean for investors? Christmas falls on a Tuesday this year, which gives shoppers -- and retailers -- an extra weekday for finding that last-minute gift. The demand for architects is on the rise. Shaquille O’Neal announced he will launch a new vodka called Luv Shaq. Stephen Beard follows the rise of Shahid Nazir from fish monger in London to a worldwide Youtube sensation. And we hear the story of a man who, after serving 13 years in prison, found out he owed the city of Philadelphia almost $42,000.
