Playlist: Cities, transportation and menswear fashion

For Marketplace, Thursday, February 17, 2011
Are cities our greatest invention? Economist Edward Glaeser thinks so, and explains further in his new book, “Triumph of The City.” The trend of people moving closer to public transportation within cities is also another sign. And commentator Angela Glover Blackwell spoke about why part of Obama’s budget needs to focus on transportation initiatives. Obama, meanwhile, will be meeting with Silicon Valley and tech executives tonight. Banks are looking at big fines from federal regulators for how they handled the foreclosure crisis. We took a look at what’s next for Watson, the new “Jeopardy!” champ, and how menswear is infiltrating women’s fashion. And here are the songs we played:
- Move Your Body (Toy Selectah Raverton Remix) – Sammy BananasBuy
- Suicide Policeman – YuckBuy
- By Surprise – Realometer
- Sevastopol – MobyBuy
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?
