For Marketplace Morning Report, Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Some fun and not-so-fun things for the first of the month: There’s a new resort at Disney World… for pets. L.A. Times columnist David Lazarus has some info on how an unlisted number may cost you. Australia puts a cork in its use of the name “Champagne,” and why haven’t video stores like Blockbuster gone the way of T-Rex? These are the other stories we covered: A ratings agency escapes fraud charges, CEOs who lay off the most workers get the biggest paychecks, Burger King is considering sale, Afghanistan’s biggest private bank is worrying some, Greece gets serious about a smoking ban, and we look at private-sector job losses and the latest from the FCIC. Plus, these are the songs we played:

  • Vanished — Crystal CastlesBuy
  • Trav’lin’ All Alone (Nickodemus & Zeb Remix) — Billie HolidayBuy
  • Hummer — FoalsBuy
  • Weapon of Choice — Black Rebel Motorcycle ClubBuy
  • Eyes on the Prize — Mavis StaplesBuy

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?
