Playlist: Hitchhiking, Fed buys bonds again

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Wednesday, September 21, 2011

The Federal Reserve is stepping in to buy bonds again, but GOP leaders have sent a public note opposing the decision. Commentator Robert Reich discussed why asking the rich to pay their fair share of the tax burden is not "class warfare." The UAW is bringing auto worker jobs to Tennessee. An environmental group is charging Apple with allowing its suppliers to illegally pollute the air and water in China. Google's Eric Schmidt went in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today under scrutiny for possible antitrust violations. And Freakonomics Radio's Stephen Dubner talked about a decline in hitchhiking. And here are the songs we played:

  • Reality - RJD2Buy
  • My Piano (DJ Kicks) - Hot ChipBuy
  • It Paid Off in the End - AnwarriorBuy
  • I Ain't Jivin, I'm Jamming - Leon Huff, Jr.Buy
  • Ride - Supreme Beings of LeisureBuy
