For Marketplace, Tuesday, September 7, 2010

The Obama administration announced several proposals to stimulate the economy, but will they work? Speaking of launching things, the Federal Housing Administration launched a new short refinance program. And we covered these other stories: Former HP CEO Mike Hurd is on his way to Oracle, more Haitians are heading for the country after January’s deadly earthquake, UCLA’s Anderson School of Management is opting out of millions in state funds, Professor Daniel Drezner on what’s to like about the new crop of college kids starting school, a Broadway play on football coach Vince Lombardi has some wondering if people will head to the theater to watch, and Kai wonders about Google’s balls. If you’re wondering what music we played, here’s our playlist:

  • Black Refuge — JunipBuy
  • Bye Bye Bye — School of Seven BellsBuy
  • Northside Diehard — MatlockBuy
  • Brain Freeze — Sackcloth FashionBuy
  • Heavy Action (Monday Night Football theme) — Johnny PearsonBuy
