For Marketplace Money, December 31, 2010
On the eve of the new year, we questioned Marketplace regulars on what they’re wishing for in 2011, and listened to your resolutions. We also heard a lot about giving, from why we give to how charities are using social media and how others are recruiting professionals to help. There was also a story about how green hotels may be killing jobs, and about a new sort of friendlier payday lender. And Tess spoke to co-author John Gerzema about his perception of a “spend shift” in American consumerism. Here are the songs we played:
- Everything Counts – Depeche ModeBuy
- Kong – BonoboBuy
- We Made You – EminemBuy
- Amazing (Kanye West) – Writer’s Bloc
- Somebody’s Watching Me – RockwellBuy
- Supersonic – JJ FadBuy
- Trademark – Joe Satriani
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
