For Marketplace, Thursday, August 19, 2010

Today on Marketplace, reporter Gregory Warner goes deep into the history of the Colonoscopy, one of dozens of preventive screenings tests that will be fully covered by health insurance providers under health care reform. Also on the show: Floods exacerbate Pakistan’s budget woes. Tax reform for growth and fairness. Cargo ships at full capacity. And Fannie and Freddie trying to return bad mortgages. Good luck with that. Plus, these are the songs we played on the show:

  • Crazy – Patrice PikeBuy
  • Waterfalls – TLCBuy
  • Faithless Street – WhiskeytownBuy
  • We Shot the World – The PonysBuy
  • Tune Down – Chris JossBuy

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
