Playlist: Online privacy and electricity

Posted by Chau Tu

For Marketplace, Wednesday, December 1, 2010

The Federal Trade Commission released a report today on online privacy, and its chairman urged for the establishment of a Do Not Track system. The Federal Reserve also released some big information today -- the names and numbers involved in the bank bailout. The White House announced that it's reversing its decision on offshore drilling in the mid- and southern Atlantic coast and the west coast of Florida. Unemployment funding officially ran out today, but as Mitchell Hartman reports, this may not be helping the economy. Scott Tong, reporting from the Cancun climate conference, reported on states and companies who are taking the initiative on switching to clean energy, and the pros and cons. Commentator Robert Reich says the federal deficit should take a back seat. And here are the songs we played:
