For Marketplace, Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Today on Marketplace: The U.S. imported more stuff than we sent overseas in June. Our editors offered a quick roundup of economic data. Commentator Robert Reich weighed in with his thoughts on how long-term economic woes are fueling public anger. Yesterday we looked at what Meg Whitman’s spending was buying her in California’s gubernatorial race. Today, we look at what her Democratic opponent, Jerry Brown, is spending… or not. And we round out our show with blood diamonds and the greening of death. Plus, these are the songs we played:

  • Smokehouse – Pell MellBuy
  • Wired for Light – School of Seven Bells Buy
  • ’03 Bonnie and Clyde – Jay-Z Tribute Band Buy the original
  • Direction – Sackcloth FashionBuy
  • Jezebel – Iron & WineBuy
  • Deep Red Bells- Neko CaseBuy
