Playlist: Oil and islands
Posted by Daryl Paranada
For Marketplace Morning Report, Monday, September 20, 2010
After five months, the government says the BP oil well in the Gulf of Mexico has finally stopped gushing. Doing some island hopping now. China and Japan are in a spat over a few small islands and we tell you why. And Hawaii is luring in some big TV and film productions. In D.C., a Defense bill has some extra goodies in it. And we also cover the rising price of gold, why the Private Equity Council changed its name, a new OECD report with suggestions on how to get the U.S. economy back on track, and one bank’s grace program. Here’s what we played:
- Protection — Massive AttackBuy
- Love & Liberte — Gipsy KingsBuy
- Love at the Five and Dime — Houston JonesBuy
- Miguel for President — The Cuban Brothers
- Red Sox Pugie — Foals
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?
