Playlist: A week of closure
Posted by Matt Berger
For Marketplace, July 16, 2010
It was a week of endings for many of the stories we cover regularly at Marketplace. BP stopped the flow of oil from its broken well in the Gulf of Mexico, the SEC settled with Goldman Sachs over shady mortgage dealings, the Senate put the final stamp of approval on a wide-reaching financial reform bill, and Steve Jobs finally offered a mea culpa to iPhone 4 owners, some of whom have been complaining about spotty reception. As a soundtrack to this week of closure, we chose the following songs for today’s show:
- I’m Gone – Oddisee Buy
- R U Listening? – Illa J Buy
- I’m Branded – Los Straitjackets Listen
- Give – Sackcloth Fashion Buy
- Coffee at Changos – James Hardway Buy
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
