For Marketplace, Friday, August 27, 2010

On the 5th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina we take a peak into the “new normal” in New Orleans. Also on the show: Young investors wary of stock market; An interview with the author of the ‘Hard Times Guide to Retirement Security;’ An interview with an anti-consumer who went on a year-long “Great American Apparel Diet;” and better now than later: Use those gift cards! Plus, these are the songs we played between segments:

  • Wolves – DoshBuy
  • Shake Up – Detroit Cobras
  • Heart is Strange – School of the 7 BellsBuy
  • Minor Swing (John Beltran’s Remember New Orleans Mix) – Django ReinhardtBuy
  • Somebody Loves Me – Les PaulBuy

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?
