For Marketplace, Thu., Aug. 18, 2011

Europe, in trying to deal with its debt crisis, fails to convince anyone that it's headed in the right direction. Banks are putting new fees on debit cards. The Fed's decision to hold down interest rates may lead to problems for consumers and savers, without even doing much to reduce uncertainty in the economy. We look at how banks are affected by market mood swings. And Rick Perry makes Ron Paul look like a moderate.

Here are the songs we played today:
