For Marketplace Morning Report, Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Good morning. Did you have a cup of coffee today? Our sustainability reporter Adriene Hill tells you why those coffee cups are problematic and offers some tips on making your cup of joe more environmentally friendly. We have a slideshow of the rescue efforts in Chile to get 33 miners out from underground. And we also cover these stories: The SEC may adopt a rule making it easier for stockholders to replace directors on corporate boards, there has been a surge of car recalls, Ireland’s credit rating has been downgraded, India is keeping tabs on NGOs, Bob Dylan concert tickets are on sale in SF if you’ve got the cash, and mortgage modifications are helping to make re-defaulting less likely. Plus, these are the songs we played:

  • Jaguar — The Surf CowboysBuy
  • Angel Heart — DJ CamBuy
  • Science vs. Romance — Rilo KileyBuy
  • Food for Thought — UB40Buy
  • Stars All Seem To Weep — Beth OrtonBuy

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?
