For Marketplace Morning Report, Friday, August 20, 2010

Have a cup of coffee this morning? Guess which country drinks the most coffee on a per person basis. If that’s not enough to wake you up, perhaps a rap song about Elizabeth Warren will help. We covered both of these stories this morning. And also: Hardship withdrawals are on the rise, American Airlines slapped with a huge fine, Transocean says BP is holding back rig data, Smucker’s rolls out new products, and the week’s news in a [60-second poem](). These are the songs we played:

  • Milton Road (My Skull With Flowers mix by Kim Hiorthoy) — Mice ParadeBuy
  • Cornflake Girl — Tori AmosBuy
  • F! re (Put It in the Air) — The KnuxBuy
  • Gimme Shelter — International Yoyo OrchestraBuy

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?
