For Marketplace, Wednesday, September 29, 2010

A lot of stories today considering how other countries are affecting the U.S.: Europe and the U.S. have been urging China to allow its currency to rise, but a Chinese premier says not to blame the yuan for cheap import prices. Commentator David Frum recommends looking back at Germany’s reunification to reflect on how America should move forward. Annie Murphy reports on Brazil’s presidential election coming up on Sunday. Austerity cuts are coming to a few European countries, and protesters are fighting hard, but can they make a difference? Also, more developments with AIG and BP, and Virginia looks to privatize liquor. And here are the songs that we played:

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?
