Marketplace for Wednesday, July 11, 2012

House Republicans are set to repeal Obama's Affordable Care Act tomorrow -- but why waste the time and money over the inevitable roadblock? New York bureau chief Heidi Moore says Americans shouldn't turn away too fast from Britain's ugly LIBOR scandal. Reporter Mitchell Hartman does some fact-checking on the economic plans of the presidential candidates. China bureau chief Rob Schmitz continues his new series on the Street of Eternal Happiness, introducing us to a flower shop owner there. And how much time do we waste watching cat videos on YouTube?
