For Marketplace, Friday, January 7, 2011

The December jobs report came out today, and it was unexpected in many ways. Mitchell Hartman went over the details. Kai also discussed with Heidi Moore from The Dealbook at The New York Times and Sudeep Reddy of the Wall Street Journal about how those numbers could affect Wall Street. The Obama administration has been reaching out to the business community — and the next step may be a reform of the current 35 percent business tax. Commentator Marissa Mayer of Google spoke about embracing her inner geek in this new year. Rayon — best known as the fabric used in the colorful and trendy Hawaiian shirts of the ’70s and ’80s — may be making a comeback. An upcoming referendum in Sudan could affect the world’s oil and economy. And construction equipment has become hot property — to steal. Here are the songs we played:

  • Reality – RJD2Buy
  • Steal My Kisses – Ben HarperBuy
  • A Beat Never Forgets – MicrophonepetBuy
  • Faithful – AnwarriorBuy
  • We’re Young and Beautiful – Carrie UnderwoodBuy
