Playlist: Netflix, Ireland and job applying by voicemail
Posted by Chau Tu
For Marketplace, Monday, November 22, 2010
On today’s show, Jennifer Collins reported on Netflix’s new online-streaming-only plan, which the company hopes will keep it competitive against other movie-rental rivals. Ireland gives in to a $120 bailout, but what does that mean for the future of the Euro? After sifting through job application after job application, some companies are trying to get creative in the search — a two-minute pitch by voicemail, anyone? We also had stories about changes to the medical loss ratio rule, the effects of higher taxes on the rich, and the fine line between legitimate market analysis versus insider trading. And here are the songs we played:
- Reality – RJD2Buy
- Orinoco Flow – EnyaBuy
- She Works Hard For the Money – Donna SummerBuy
- Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh – Say HiBuy
- We Are – AnwarriorBuy
