For Marketplace Morning Report, Monday, October 25, 2010
This week on Marketplace we’ll be following sustainable jobs. Today, we learned the fishing industry is suffering from shrinking catches and pollution.
The U.S. Treasury sold bonds yesterday that effectively have a negative rate of return. That is, investors paid the government for the opportunity to lend it money.
The Environmental Production Agency announced the winner of their Biggest Loser competition. Congratulations to UNC.
New BP CEO Bob Dudley told British business leaders that the Gulf oil spill was greatly exaggerated by the media.
Ford announced today that they are in their sixth straight quarter of profit. The announcement was paired with their intention to hire 1200 new employees if Michigan approves tax incentives.
We also heard about NBA players salaries, and bags of money from Iran to Afghanistan.
And finally, in today’s Globalist Quiz, we learned about America’s percentage of global oil reserves.
Here are the songs we played:
- Parentheses — Blow Buy
- Sea Song — Doves Buy
- A Forest ( LP Version) — The Cure Buy
- Everloving — Moby
- To The Bank — Urthboy
