Playlist: Global neighbors and hot commodities
Posted by Chau Tu
For Marketplace, Thursday, September 16, 2010
Our show today talked a lot about our similarities with other countries: commentator Gustavo Arellano asked why it took so long to appreciate the DIY ethics that Mexicans in America have been practicing for decades, and we got a deeper look into the budget cuts and protests happening over in the U.K. Back here in the States, Kai talked to American Banker’s Barbara Rehm about Elizabeth Warren’s new position. There were also stories about China’s cheap currency, the surprising job market in the Gulf, and the reason behind rising prices of commodities. One hot commodity? Our songs list, and here it is:
- Chicken Scratch – The MotetBuy
- Light Powered – DeastroBuy
- Booklovers – BroadcastBuy
- Debate Exposes Doubt – Death Cab for CutieBut
