Playlist: On the move
Posted by Daryl Paranada
For Marketplace, Tuesday, November 9, 2010
A couple of stories on the move. First, we look at rapid bus transit, a cheaper alternative to rail. But it does have a stigma to shake off. We head to India, where we see why middle management is necessary. And in the U.K., the government’s got a plan for “The Big Society.” What is it and how will it work? Stephen Beard reports. In trade news, we look at what the U.S. can export and sell more of. We also find out why some insurers oppose calls to repeal the health reform law. Other stories we covered: potential consequences of the Federal Reserve’s $600 billion bond buying plan and why Facebooking at work is OK. Here are the songs we played:
- Viva La Vida — ColdplayBuy
- Call on Me — Janet JacksonBuy
- She Came Along — Sharam feat. Kid CudiBuy
- Waterfalls — TLCBuy
- Octavio — Viva VoceBuy
