Marketplace for Wednesday, August 22, 2012

A new study says that middle-class incomes have been shrinking over the past decade, so what's there left to be positive about? Mexico is facing a massive shortage of eggs, causing prices to more than double. Business correspondent Bob Moon discusses our current love-hate relationship with the American economy. In the latest installment of Freakonomics, Stephen Dubner looks at the hidden side of working from home. David Brancaccio continues our Payday series, exploring exactly how paychecks are calculated. And we hear about Rabun County, Ga., and how it's still dealing with the fame left over from the filming of "Deliverance" there.
