Marketplace for Wednesday, August 29, 2012

With the end of summer nearing, we look at the economics of the ice cream man. Retailers are catching the marriage bug. After a month long vacation, European politicians are back at work. Kai Ryssdal talks to Myles Porter from the American judo team about what it's like to be legally blind and compete in this year's Paralympic Games. Reporter David Gura stops into Port Orange, Fla., where tax problems and plummeting land prices are creating major issues for those who live there. And we learn how the Times Picayune's role in the community has evolved since Katrina, even among downsizing.
