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
    Buy
  • Red Sox Pugie — Foals
