Playlist: Airlines and froyo

Posted by Emilie Mutert

For Marketplace, Wednesday, October 20, 2010

News from the skies: Delta, US Airways and American Airlines all report strong earnings for the summer travel season. Back on land, Microsoft announces that they'll soon be selling their Microsoft Office applications for individual purchase. Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal talks to an Illinois county sheriff about how he's stopped enforcing evictions until the foreclosure mess is cleared up. Across the pond, the U.K. announces the launch of a big deficit reduction program - the first of its kind for a major economy. We've also got stories on employers evaluating job applicants based on their credit histories, new ideas about senior care and retirement and how froyo is faring during the recession. All that plus commentator Robert Reich on last spring's Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance. And of course, the music from today's show:
