Protests continue in Wisconsin over the state budget, and other states are beginning to follow suit with their own rallies. The U.S. government, too, faces a possible shutdown over federal budget disputes. In the Middle East, discontent in Libya may affect oil prices around the world. British computer chip designer ARM is taking on Intel. Commentator Nancy Folbre discussed the debate over ethics for economists. And Freakonomics Radio’s Stephen Dubner took a look at the possible upcoming NFL strike. And here are the songs we played:
