Playlist: Planes take off

Posted by Daryl Paranada

For Marketplace Morning Report, Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Time for take off. An airline industry group has raised its profit forecast for the industry. We tell you why. In car news, Congress is looking into curbing the problem of distracted driving, and a Chinese automaker may buy into GM's upcoming IPO. In D.C., some lawmakers want a biennial budget and we look at what the Federal Reserve can do about its monetary policy. We looked at the latest housing numbers and apartments. Internationally, Ireland had a successful bond auction and nations are still striving to reach their so-called Millennium Goals. We also covered the rising costs of dementia. Over in NYC, a grilled cheese maker makes money on the sly, and we looked at what's more economically beneficial for the Big Apple: Fashion Week or the U.N. General Assembly. What do you think? Here's what we played:

  • Bijoux (remix) -- Manitoba
  • Green Means -- NobodyBuy
  • Fefe Naa Efe -- Fela KutiBuy
  • Wildcat -- RatatatBuy
  • African Velvet -- AirBuy
