Playlist: Japan's supply chain, and making things happen

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Thursday, March 24, 2011

The Japan earthquake and tsunami has disrupted the supply chain for hundreds of companies worldwide. This, however, could boost work here in the U.S., especially in the auto industry. Some big U.S. companies are trying to promote a tax holiday on foreign profits, but that won't necessarily mean new jobs. Petco tries to expand by opening small boutique stores, while LL Bean offers free shipping for every online purchase at all times. Kai spoke to the New York Time's Eric Lichtblau about Libya and Gaddafi, and to author Seth Godin about his new book, "Poke the Box," about going out and getting things done. And here are the songs we played:

  • Sweet Child O' Mine (Guns N' Roses) - Guns N' Roses Tribute BandBuy
  • What You Know - T.I.Buy
  • Atomic Dog - George ClintonBuy
  • Midget Submarines - Swell MapsBuy
  • Disco d'Oro - TussleBuy
