Posted by Daryl Paranada
For Marketplace Morning Report, Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Home prices are up for the fourth straight month. Analyst Julie Niemann tells us why that is. Progress has slowed for the number of women in management positions. Some big news from a couple of insurers. We look at whether taxpayers will get their money back from AIG and why British insurer Lloyd’s of London’s half-year profits are cut in half. In international news, the U.K. has a thing for cheese, a BBC poll reveals that taxpayers think their money is being misspent, and shareholders in China want to stop a man from running his company — from inside a jail cell. In tech news, we looked at the sustainability of news devices of the future. And we also covered the FTC’s complaint against POM Wonderful’s health claims and gas pipelines safety. Here’s what we played:
- Parentheses — The BlowBuy
- Bulletproof — MorcheebaBuy
- Paint It, Black — The Rolling StonesBuy
- Throw Down — Ananda ShankarBuy
- Yellow Submarine — The BeatlesBuy
