For Marketplace Morning Report, Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Who’s out? Larry Summers as President Obama’s talk economic adviser. We explore why and who might replace him on today’s show. Lights out at General Electric’s last big U.S. factory making incandescent bulbs. A sealskin ban might put some Scottish kilt makers out, but there’s a loophole in the law that could help. Water spurting out of a French fountain is sparkly (and free!). The egg farmer linked to the recall is out in Capitol Hill testifying about his farm operations. Out in Moscow, international leaders are discussing who owns rights to riches under the Arctic seabed. On Facebook, AT&T is out and about responding to consumers. We cover their approach. And are we on the outs as consumers about energy saving? One study says we’re clueless. And with that, here’s what we played on today’s show:

  • Hit the Heartbrakes — Black KidsBuy
  • Summertime (Organica Remix) — Billie HolidayBuy
  • Arroz Con Pollo — MaxwellBuy
  • Human Behavior — BjorkBuy
  • Falcon Jab — RatatatBuy

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?
