Marketplace for Thursday, November 17, 2011

On today's show, we looked at how one might brand Occupy Wall Street. Some retailers are gearing up for Christmas early, while others are sticking to one holiday at a time. You may be charged more for health care if you smoke or are overweight. And we also heard about the history of skyscrapers, and the latest on the NBA lockout.
