For Marketplace, Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Today on Marketplace: For the first time ever in the U.S. student loan debt surpassed credit card debt. We look at what another recession would feel like following a report from the San Francisco Fed that says odds are about 50-50 that we’ll get a recovery or a double dip within the next two years. The EPA takes aim at cement plants. Google weighs using data for profit. A look a what Meg Whitman is buying with her campaign funds. And investing in oil; Is it socially responsible? Plus, these are the songs we played:

  • Before He Cheats – Carrie Underwood Buy
  • We Here – Illa J Buy
  • Junior Kickstart – The Go! Team Buy
  • The Chase – London Funk AllstarsWatch video
  • Afro Surf – Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra Buy
