For Marketplace, Thursday, July 29, 2010

On today’s show we take a look at how the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is shaping up as part of the recent financial reform law. We also investigate the growing trend of renting over owning a home. And join us on a visit to Rwanda to hear about how it’s economy is changing following the Rwandan genocide, which left behind devastation and a dominantly female population. Also, about those so-called “downer drinks,” and stop swearing i the workplace! Here are the songs we played between segments:
