Playlist: Unemployment, transportation taxes

For Marketplace, Friday, December 3, 2010
On today’s show, we looked at the disappointing — and surprising — numbers coming from the jobs report released today. Mitchell Hartman reported that we should get used to the big numbers. The government’s official debt reduction proposal was rejected today, too, and David Gura reported that it still put tax codes on the minds of lawmakers. We also had stories on international taxes on aviation and shipping in the works and Mexican business owners moving across the border to Texas. Kai had a conversation from the corner office with Toys”R”Us CEO Jerry Storch, and the weekly wrap with Leigh Gallagher and John Carney. And here are the songs we played:
- Pockets – Four TetBuy
- Major Tom (Voellig Losgeloest) – Peter SchillingBuy
- My Only Swerving – El Ten ElevenBuy
- Secret Breakfast – CitayBuy
- Direction – Sackcloth FashionBuy
