Playlist: USPS and health insurance prices

Posted by Katharine Crnko

For Marketplace Morning Report, Friday, November 12, 2010

The USPS is trying a new tactic to get them out of the red. Find out what it is. In retail news, more pop-up stores are springing up. In tech news, the Commerce Department and the White House announced plans to appoint a high-level privacy watchdog that would negotiate the issue of online privacy. But some people aren't happy about that.

Commentator Michael Perino says that today's financial reform law can succeed. He explains how. And we also cover the G-20, quantitative easing and jobs in our Weekly Wrap. Plus, a story about how the corporate tax rate isn't as high as it seems.

And finally, the price of health insurance isn't going down -- yet. Check out our Consumer's Guide to Health Care as well. These are the songs we played:

  • Trav'lin' All Alone (Nickodemus & Zeb Remix) -- Billie HolidayBuy
  • Phantom Broadcast (War Child) -- The Go! TeamBuy
  • Smoke -- Martin & Wood MedeskiBuy
