For Marketplace, Monday, December 20, 2010

There are rumors that Direct TV is working on getting targeted ads on the TV, but to do so, the company will have to obtain a lot of information on you, the viewer. If you're in need of a witty T-shirt, online retailer Threadless is the go-to site. Founder Jake Nickell talked to Kai about the company's 10 years and what's ahead. News came today that Ernst and Young may be sued for its role in the Lehman Brothers collapse. Bob Moon looked into whether the Fed's plan of quantitative easing is working yet. More middle-class retirees are asking for financial help. The FCC will make a decision on net neutrality tomorrow. And we heard from our latest Road Warrior on her favorite tunes for the road. Here were the tunes we played on the show:

  • Cissy Strut - The MetersBuy
  • High Class Slim Came Floatin' In - TortoiseBuy
  • The Longest Road - Morgan PageBuy
  • Apartment - MorningsideBuy
  • S.O.S. - Jonas BrothersBuy
