For Marketplace, Friday, October 29, 2010

We’re all living a life after ‘Lost.’ And co-creator Damon Lindelof is feeling the effects too, as he told us today through his commentary. We also heard from professor John Quiggin, as he talked to Kai about his new book, “Zombie Economics,” which covers economic theories that just won’t die, while reporter Stacey Vanek-Smith took on “zombie” assets in the housing industry. Miami-based BankUnited won’t ‘die’ either; it was sold off by the FDIC over a year ago, and now the private investors who bought it are ready to take it public again. We also had stories about what affects GDP growth, and how telenovelas are embracing product placement. Here are the songs we played:

  • Ioio — Nosaj ThingBuy
  • Belisha Beacon — Funki PorciniBuy
  • Selector — Mark Ronson And The Business IntlBuy
  • The Last Wars — KarateBuy
  • Sombre Reptiles — Brian EnoBuy
  • Oscillate Wildly — The SmithsBuy
