For Marketplace, Friday, February 18, 2011

A Columbia University journalism professor goes offline, and finds her relationships suffer and shopping a chore. Democrats in Wisconsin have done some fleeing too, trying to boycott a cut to collective bargaining powers for unions. Experts are trying to advise U.S. securities regulators impose tougher rules on high-frequency trading to prevent a sequel to the May 6, 2010, "flash crash." Rising food prices are bringing some concern to the Middle East. And Mitchell Hartman reported on the latest in Egypt. Here are the songs we played:

  • Brother Lee - Citizen CopeBuy
  • Funky 24hrs a Day - AnwarriorBuy
  • Spilt Milk - DujeousBuy
  • Welcome to the Jungle (Guns N' Roses) - Vitamin String QuartetBuy
  • Instrumental Vision - CrocodileBuy
