For Marketplace Morning Report, Monday, September 13, 2010

Two big banking and tax stories today. Central bankers have agreed to force banks to triple their amount of capital reserves — spare cash they can use in a crisis. House Minority Leader John Boehner has signaled that he may be open to compromising on proposed tax cuts. No such luck in the U.K., where unions are considering going on strike against budget cuts. We also covered life in Chicago without Oprah, whether people will buy sustainable fashion, competition BlackBerry faces, Chattanooga getting the fastest Internet service in the U.S., issues with old pipelines, and why California wants some rail help from China. And these are the songs we played:

  • Flashing Lights — Kanye WestBuy
  • I Predict A Riot — Kaiser ChiefsBuy
  • 1234 — FeistBuy
  • Borderline — MadonnaBuy
  • Bruises — ChairliftBuy
  • New York, New York — Ryan AdamsBuy

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?
