Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced her department’s plans to support Internet freedom. Chevron is on the hook for $9 billion in Ecuador, and it could be a long legal battle ahead.
In the Middle East, rulers are trying to increase benefits for the poor and avoid the popular anger that helped overthrow former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak. And we had two stories on separation barriers and their effects on immigration around the world. Here are the songs we played:

Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
