For Marketplace, Thursday, August 19, 2010

Olive oil virginity is in question today on Marketplace. We look at a recent study that found many of those top-shelf oils at the grocery store are not as virginal as we think. Also on the show: Was Lockerbie bomber released as part of a business deal? Patent applications jumped up during recession. Facebook follows you with ‘Places.’ What GM’s IPO means. And Intel and McAfee, combining computer chips and security. Plus, these are the songs we played on the show:

  • Sidewalk – Built to SpillBuy
  • Yeah – Eliot LippBuy
  • African Rhythms – Jay DeeBuy
  • In Your Deck – D-TensionBuy
  • A New Career In A New Town – David BowieBuy

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?
