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
