For Marketplace Morning Report, Friday, September 10, 2010

President Obama held his eighth White House news conference. We discussed what he said on today’s show. He also got a new top economic adviser, Austan Goolsbee. We traveled around the U.S. for other stories. In California, a proposition may stop the state from reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In Memphis, Tenn., residents don’t seem to mind airport noise. In New York City near Ground Zero, we spoke with businesses to see whether the proposed Islamic center and mosque would help boost their bottom lines. In D.C., the Pentagon is getting serious about cutting costs. We learn how suppliers are reacting. Internationally, fake honey is becoming an issue in Israel. And finally, OPEC turns 50. These are the songs we played:

  • Living Proof — Cat PowerBuy
  • The Garden You Planted — Sea WolfBuy
  • Keep Up — Motor City Drum EnsembleBuy
  • Hey Mama Wolf — Devendra BanhartBuy
  • Seventeen Years — RatatatBuy

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?
