For Marketplace, Friday, October 1, 2010

Today’s show featured an in-depth interview with TIAA-CREF CEO Roger Ferguson on the future of retirement after the Great Recession. For young’uns, Stacey Vanek Smith reported on how the tiny ‘like’ button on Facebook is actually playing a huge factor in marketing for companies. In related news, spending apparently went up a little bit during the month of August, which means companies may not have to slash their prices so drastically anymore. There were also stories about high frequency traders laying a cable underneath the Atlantic Ocean, and how people are trying to prevent another housing bubble from bursting. And here are the songs we played:
