For Marketplace, Tuesday, January 18, 2011
On today’s show, Kai spoke to author and veteran venture capitalist William Draper about his new book, “The Startup Game,” and about how the VC world is changing. We heard from former D.C. school chancellor Michelle Rhee on her thoughts about education and its relationship to the economy. Steve Henn looked into the challenges that lie ahead for Apple, with or without CEO Steve Jobs. The House is beginning its debate on repealing the health care reform. President Obama, meanwhile, is ordering a review of regulations that might stifle economic growth, and are “just plain dumb.” Consumers get to hear their voices as the Consumer Product Safety Commission soft launches its online product review database for recalls and complaints. AT&T heads to the Supreme Court tomorrow in a case about whether the Freedom of Information Act could protect businesses and their information from competitors. And here are the songs we played:
- La Lucha – The MotetBuy
