For Marketplace, Wednesday, March 9, 2011

In light of recent events concerned NPR, we heard more about public radio funding. Commentator Richard Reich discusses the looming government shutdown next week. Texas is considering shutting down four community colleges — all of which serve as the only higher education institutes for miles around. Maine has obtained a health care law waiver for Medical Loss Ratio. And Gregory Warner brought another story from Russia about its clinical trials. And here are the songs we played:

  • Move – CSSBuy

  • I’ll Be Around – Relentless (feat. E-40 and Jah Free)Buy

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?
