For Marketplace, December 31, 2010
There’s barely time left in the year 2010: Bob Moon talks to Leigh Gallagher from Fortune Magazine and Sudeep Reddy from the Wall Street Journal about how the economy fared during 2010. And Rico Gagliano and Brendan Newnam of the Dinner Party Download share the most amusing pieces of news shared to them by Marketplace staffers. The end of the year is also when nonprofits make a big push to get donations. Jeff Tyler talks about his experience and others with endless donation solicitation letters. Although the Chinese New Year isn’t until February, Rob Schmitz reports on the underground economy generated by mooncakes, which are traditionally eaten during the holiday.Many people suffered headaches due to grounded planes from the post-holiday snowstorms, and some, not-so-nice treatment from airlines. Marketplace’s Adriene Hill talked about the latest way to get your complaints heard: Twitter. And it’s not an easy issue to confront, but Gregory Warner talks about long-term care insurance.Here are the songs we played:
