For Marketplace, Thursday, November 18, 2010
On today’s show, Kai spoke with Shanghai correspondent Rob Schmitz about the concerns in China over a potential property bubble — and housing crisis. Amy Scott reported on how Louisiana is trying to overhaul its teacher-training program. We heard from Economy 4.0 on how big banks should take a lesson from community banks (hint: paying attention to customers!). We also had stories about how building Congress teams is like small business, the latest in the potential Ireland bailout, and the big GM-on-Wall-Street news. Here are the songs we played:
- Led to the Sea – Jenny Owen YoungsBuy
- Diplo Mix – RJD2
- Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears for FearsBuy
- My Piano (DJ Kicks) – Hot ChipBuy
- Faithful – Anwarrior
