For Marketplace Morning Report, Friday, September 3, 2010

The latest jobs report is out, and it’s not as bad as we expected. Speaking of jobs, President Obama may use tax breaks to get businesses to start hiring. Plus we covered these other stories: In Florida, blood banks were fighting for the veins of high school kids, billionaire Howard Hughes may have led a secret life, Russia is extending its ban on grain exports, there’s less drinking going on in the U.K., and a southern California electric bus can charge faster than your cell phone. We also have Bill Radke’s Marketplace Minute as well as a story on noise. And here are the songs we played:

  • The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance — Vampire WeekendBuy
  • Milton Road (My Skull With Flowers mix by Kim Hiorthoy) — Mice ParadeBuy
  • TUntrust Us — Cafe De Paris
  • Too High to Move — Quiet Village
  • Freedom Sounds — The SkatalitesBuy

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?
