For Marketplace, Monday, December 27, 2010

On today’s show, we looked at how snowstorms on the East Coast stalled post-holiday shopping. And speaking of shopping, retailers are trying to limit the number of disappointed returns they’re getting. In California, regulators have just approved the use of a controversial pesticide. If you like strawberries, you might want to check out our story to see why you should care about the approval of using methyl iodide in the Golden State. Schools across the nation are revamping their MBA programs. We tell you why. In world news…. In Estonia, residents are weighing the pros and cons of joining the eurozone. And finally we look at the issue of privacy in our continuing coverage of the year’s top business stories. Check out our Year in Review package if you get a chance. Here are the songs we played:

  • Kisses — KissesBuy
  • Aminals — BathsBuy
  • Postcard from Italy — BeirutBuy
  • Modern Saints — The Von BondiesBuy
  • La Femme Ressort — La FemmeBuy

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?
