For Marketplace, Thursday, September 2, 2010

At 30 now, Strawberry Shortcake is getting new duds: a cute miniskirt. Bye-bye dowdy pinafore. The doll is definitely not on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s mind. We look into why he says that banks should be allowed to fail. In foods news, Burger King announced plans to go private. And other stories we covered: Hertz and Avis are battling it out for Dollar Thrifty, rethinking the future of employee pensions, New York Times columnist David Leonhardt on why the lack of hiring is a problem, and Bill Keogh, senior vice president of risk-consulting firm EQECAT, discusses how the firm estimates damages. These are the songs we played:

  • We’re Young and Beautiful — Carrie Underwood Tribute BandBuy
  • Deliver Me — Tom Petty and the HeartbreakersBuy
  • I’m Amazed — My Morning JacketBuy
  • Ooh La La — FacesBuy
  • A Change Will Do You Good — Sheryl Crow
