Posted by Chau Tu
For Marketplace, Tuesday, September 14, 2010
Can AIG really pay back all of its debts back to the government? Kai discussed the details with Wall Street Journal reporter Serena Ng. Meanwhile, Marketplace reporter Jeremy Hobson went out in search of evidence of whether raising taxes for anyone would indeed stall hiring and investments. We also looked into the strange case of blog taxes currently brewing in Philadelphia, what the Ritz-Carlton’s doing in efforts to get more rooms filled, and we talked to the new editor of the Paris Review about how the revered literary journal hopes to stay relevant in tech-heavy times. Here were the songs we played:
- Treat Yo Mama – John Butler TrioBuy
- Take My Sin – Sackcloth Fashion
- Parisian Glam Slam – Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong OrchestraBuy
- ’03 Bonnie and Clyde (Jay-Z and Beyonce) – Can You Flow?Buy
- Paper Planes (DFA remix) – M.I.A.Buy
