For Marketplace, Friday, July 30, 2010
“We have a very distorted economy,” former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan said in a Sunday interview on NBC’s Meet the Press. Banks and corporations are in excellent shape. Small businesses and the working class? Not so much.
Also on the show: President Barack Obama gives a speech in Atlanta to disabled veterans about troop withdrawals; The price of pork skyrockets, which means you’re paying more for your next BLT; An in-depth look at the booming business of online comment moderation; Another soundtrack in our music series: Road Warriors. And these are the songs we played on the show:
- Touch Too Much (Ewan Pearson Remix) – Hot Chip Buy
- Travelin’ Alone – Nickodemus & Zeb Remix (Billy Holiday Remixed & Reimagined) Buy
- Right Hand High – Kid Sister Buy
- Call Me – Blondie Buy
- Big Lost – Diplo Buy
