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:

Burning in the Sun – Merle



  • Let It Rock – (Lil Wayne and Kevin Rudolf) Instrumental Hip Hop Beat Makers
  • p.s. – Film SchoolBuy
  • I Love You (Inst.) – Annie BuyBuy
  • 7/4 (shoreline) – Broken Social SceneBuy
  • There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you.
