For Marketplace, Thursday, December 23, 2010

It’s been a tumultuous year in health care; Gregory Warner went over all the details with Kai. Robotics is getting high-tech enough to be used to save disabled children’s lives. As our Internet use becomes more common and more easily accessible, we must remember to consider the amount of energy used at such times. Speaking of energy, a lot more people have begun using energy-efficient LED lights, as a way to save money. And the EPA announced it will set new rules for greenhouse gas emissions. Investors are beginning to get more confident in retail companies. And Stephen Beard reported on one man who’s doing good this holiday season. Here are the songs we played:

  • Reality – RJD2Buy
  • Mela D – Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong OrchestraBuy
  • Doctor! Doctor! – Thompson TwinsBuy
  • Girl They Won’t Believe It – Joss StoneBuy
  • Satori a Paris – Marc GrauBuy

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
