For Marketplace, Thursday, February 10, 2011

On today’s show, we continued our coverage on Egypt, speaking about the economic impact of President Mubarak’s pending resignation. Economy 4.0 reported on the efforts to block dictators from stashing away money and then using that to retire off of ill-gotten gains. There are also accusations that the corrupt elite in many Middle Eastern countries are hogging opportunities and assets from the poor.

The NYSE may soon be bought out by Germany. What would life be like without government-sponsored entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? And black businesses are booming in cities all across the country, perhaps because of America’s Great Migration. Here are the songs we played on the show:

  • Everybody’s Sick – Puro Instinct
  • Mazes – Moon DuoBuy
  • Get Away – Yuck
  • Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the PeopleBuy
  • Surprise Hotel – Fool’s GoldBuy
