For Marketplace, Wednesday, January 26, 2011

What’s been your favorite Super Bowl commercial so far? We rounded up a list of our favorites after surveying the Marketplace staff. The big game is poised to be a big moneymaker all around, with consumers expected to spend more than ever on food and entertainment.

As President Obama was calling for cuts in his State of the Union address, Senator Ron Paul was announcing his own cut proposal. Commentator Robert Reich gave his opinion on how the president should be dealing with the business world. The World Economic Forum kicked off today in Davos, Switzerland. The municipal bond market has been shaky, and it’s unclear if it will improve in coming months. The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission releases its book tomorrow, but will it be a bestseller? And we learned that telecommuting may not be as “green” as one would think. Here are the songs we played:

  • Cash on the Barrel Head – Louvin BrothersBuy
  • Fun Powder Plot – Wild BeastsBuy
  • 24 Hour Party People – Happy MondaysBuy
  • Caleidoscopic Gaze – StereolabBuy
  • A Beat That Never Forgets – MochipetBuy
