Playlist: The week of market mayhem

Posted by Ryan Faughnder

For Marketplace Money, Fri., Aug. 12, 2011

It's been a crazy week, filled with the downgrade of U.S. credit by Standard & Poor's and dramatic market gains and losses. All over the country people wrote to Marketplace Money with similar questions. How will this affect me, and what am I supposed to do now? We put those questions to our panel of economists.

Here are the songs we played today:

  • Frisco Wave - SquarepusherBuy
  • Mishaps Happening - Quantic Buy
  • I Need A Dollar - Aloe BlaccBuy
  • Futuristic Casket - PhantogramBuy
  • Don't Sweat The Technique - Eric B. and RakimBuy
