For Marketplace Morning Report, Friday, November 12, 2010

Today concluded this year’s G20 summit. And while there was much anticipation to the reaction of the 20 world’s wealthiest countries, the summit ended with a whimper.

One big thing to come out of the G20 is Ireland. The country is in such financial straights that the G20 is concerned it could be the next Greece.

We also heard stories in follow-up to this week’s announcement from the President’s deficit panel. How will Americans react to the changes?

It’s taken centuries, but scientists have finally figured out how cats drink. And their findings could be the solution to the Gulf oil spill.

And finally — Jeremy Hobson spoke to fashion icon and New York personality Cynthia Rowley.

Here are the songs we played:

  • Stuntin’ Like My Daddy (Street) [Explicit] — Birdman & Lil Wayne Buy
  • Hot Milk — Jackie MittooBuy
  • I’m Good, I’m Gone — Lykke Li Buy
  • The Weight Of My Words — Kings Of Convenience Buy
