For Marketplace, Wednesday, October 13, 2010
JPMorgan Chase surprised everyone with a 23 percent increase last quarter, but is this a sign of change for the banking industry? Thanks to its valuable shares, Apple’s become the second most valuable company in the U.S. by market capitalization. Alisa Roth reported on why market cap matters. Wal-Mart and other big supercenters, meanwhile, are looking into opening up stores in smaller spaces. Stephen Beard reported from Oxford about the hotly debated U.K. defense budget cuts, and David Frum gave his opinion on U.S. election campaign funding. We also had a story about an incentive to identify illegal immigrants in county jails, and Kai spoke to author Elmore Leonard about his latest thriller, “Djibouti.” Here are the songs on today’s show:
