For Marketplace, Monday, September 6, 2010

It’s a holiday for the U.S., but a Tube strike in the U.K. was threatening to cause chaos. Back here in the States, President Obama announced new stimulus plans to help kick up the economy. Lots of people out there are still out of work, so we had a story about how the recession has changed job fairs. And we had these other stories: Xerox is trying to get recognized for its services beyond copying, food bloggers are popping up at more and more restaurants, scam artists are flourishing in the recession, and new non-alcoholic downers that will help get you off the caffeine buzz. Here’s the buzz-worthy music we played on the show:

  • Listerine — QuasimojoBuy
  • Working for vacation — Cibo MattoBuy
  • Paparazzi — Lady GagaBuy
  • Woman Driving, Man Sleeping — EelsBuy

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.  

Let’s do the numbers together. 💙 

Here’s a number – 2,000. That’s how many donors we need this fall to stay on track. Can we count on you?
