Playlist: No new Fed stimulus, GDP growth stalls at 1 percent

Posted by Mary Dooe

The country's GDP grew at a dismal 1 percent in the second quarter. This will put even more pressure on Federal Reserve Chief Ben Bernanke. Businesses will hopefully soon be able to trust the transitional government in Libya to take on economic issues. A massive economic protest is planned in Israel this weekend, if all goes well.

And here are the songs we played:
