For Marketplace Morning Report, Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Should the government be in the housing business? We tackle this question on the show today on news that Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Housing Secretary Shaun Donovan are meeting today to consider ways to encourage home buying without putting taxpayers at risk. Also on the show: U.S. cuts back on routine medical care; Colorado cattle branding fetches big bucks; Cotton prices rise on demand, disasters; Barclays to pay big fine in bank case; The economics & politics of heat waves; Less defaulting, late pay on credit cards; And NYC walkers watch out for male drivers. And these are the songs we played:

  • Bulletproof – Morcheeba Buy
  • Reminder – Midwest Product Buy
  • This World Is on Fire – Elevado Buy
  • Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode Buy
  • Princes (Featuring Tinchy Stryder) – Gang Gang Dance Buy
