Marketplace for Thursday, November 1, 2012

The Wealth & Poverty Desk interviews indie rock band The National about their involvement in the election, and their popular song "Bloodbuzz Ohio." Meanwhile, telecom rivals AT&T and T-Mobile have decided to share mobile networks so that New York and New Jersey residents can receive better cell phone service. Some experts are blaming Superstorm Sandy on climate change and say that the storm was very predictable. And Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport talks about how Sandy has disrupted their polling.
