Marketplace for Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Six hundred million people in India -- about half the population there --  have been affected by the latest power outage. Meanwhile, outrage over NBC's tape-delayed broadcast of the Olympic Games continues, even though ratings show that people are still tuning in.

And we hear about the labor dispute happening with low-paid janitors in Houston.
