Marketplace for Thursday, December 6, 2012

Democrat Sen. Max Baucus from Montana discusses the fiscal cliff talks in Washington and whether or not a deal is possible. We take a look at what the purchase of one home means to the economy. The price of guar gum -- used in everyday products like ice cream, gum and paper -- has been skyrocketing. There's a battle in the U.S. over whether to export natural gas. An outfit called The Golden Spike Company says it plans to run private missions to the moon. Amy Scott takes us back to Oyler School in Cincinnati to see what progress they've made after a $21 million renovation. And Furbies are making a comeback -- no, really.
