Playlist: Cubicles and saccharin

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Is the cubicle going extinct? It seems like the enclosed workspaces are disappearing around offices. Saccharin, the artificial sweeteners that used to be associated with cancer, have now been officially taken off the EPA's hazardous list. So why are they still getting a bad rap? President Obama met with CEOs today to try and get big business to start spending, hiring and stimulating the economy again. Commentator Richard Reich spoke on tax cuts, and how Washington needs to come up with a bold solution to help out middle-class Americans. Alisa Roth investigated into how many foreclosures are out there, and Gregory Warner looked into what it would take to get people to buy health insurance. Stephen Beard concluded his series on Turkey's uprise in business. And here are the songs we played:

  • Spilt Milk - DujeousBuy
  • Sweet Child O Mine (Guns N Roses) - Vitamin String QuartetBuy
  • Brother Lee - Citizen CopeBuy
  • Chicken Scratch - The MotetBuy
  • Gotta Be Something - D-TensionBuy
  • The Sidewalk Cruise - Cassettes Won't ListenBuy
