For Marketplace, Thursday, August 26, 2010

On today’s show meet a group of arts patrons who pool their money to commission symphonies and stage productions. Also: Is the savings account still worth it? Big-box retailer Costco may be moving to a mall near you; A social experiment with $100 bills; And why low interest rates aren’t driving home sales. Plus, these are the songs we played between segments:

  • Suburbia – Pet Shop BoysBuy
  • Whatever You Like – T.I.Buy
  • 21 Guns – Green DayBuy
  • If I ruled the world – NasBuy
  • Classical Gas – Mason WilliamsBuy

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?
