For Marketplace, Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Former Senator Christopher Dodd, most remembered for his work on the financial reform package (Dodd-Frank), has taken on a new role: head of the Motion Picture Association of America. The U.S. may reach its debt ceiling next month. As oil hits $100 a barrel, the subject of the U.S.’s dependence on foreign oil rises again. In Libya, meanwhile, the U.S. sanctions highlight sovereign wealth funds. Commentator David Frum talked about Wisconsin and unions, and Kai spoke to David Roodman, senior fellow at the Center for Global Development about microfinance and the firing of Muhammad Yunus. And here are the songs that we played:

  • Everything Is Alright – Four TetBuy
  • Me and the Washing Machine – My Awesome MixtapeBuy
  • Tide Pool – E-VaxBuy
  • Knock Out Punch – The SkatalitesBuy
  • Girl They Won’t Believe It – Joss StoneBuy
  • Delicious Tears – Antn HrkwkBuy
