For Marketplace Morning Report, Monday, September 6, 2010

On Labor Day, we have stories about whether retailer strategies to get people shopping will work and word that Redbox has rented its one millionth video. Internationally, we reported on a Tube strike in London, British Airways seeking out mergers, and controversy over Germany delaying its nuclear power plant phase-out. Back here in the U.S., an urban cruise in Long Beach explores commerce and Gulf residents make the transition from disaster response to coastal restoration. And here are the songs we played:

  • Parentheses — The BlowBuy
  • Know Now Then — Ani DiFrancoBuy
  • Dive Bomb — The Whips
  • Woman Driving, Man Sleeping — EelsBuy
  • Looking Good — The Hard to Get

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?
