For Marketplace, Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Today’s show covered stories on what President Obama is looking for ahead of the G20 summit, and about the switch-up happening between News Corp. and an NYC school. Rolls-Royce faces more obstacles, which means its competitors may be getting a boost in the near future. We took a look at the viability of high-speed trains in California, and Jennifer Collins looked into the rising trend in sea salt. There was a story about Irish workers moving overseas to find jobs, and commentator David Frum finds irony in China’s recent complaints. And here are the songs we played:

  • Juveniles – The WalkmenBuy
  • Two Steps, Twice – FoalsBuy
  • Will There Be Stars – Blonde RedheadBuy
  • Parentheses – The BlowBuy
  • Thousands Are Sailing – The PoguesBuy
  • Long Division (remix) – Fugazi
