Marketplace for Thursday, December 8, 2011

As public education funding continues to get cut, we look at the role of philanthropy in education and hear about philanthrophist Eli Broad's ideas. Congressman Barney Frank talks about the future of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which was a key part of his Dodd-Frank financial reform act. Experience will be an important quality in the 2012 presidential election. European leaders are meeting in Brussels to try and save the euro once again. And baseball player Albert Pujols just signed a major deal with the Los Angeles Angels that could be big for marketing too.
