For Marketplace, Thursday, March 10, 2011

It’s been one month since Egypt’s revolution; where is the country now? The ratings of Greece and Spain were downgraded this week, which brings worries of another round of recession in Europe. PIMCO has sold all its Treasury holdings. Starbucks is teaming up with Green Mountain Coffee to offer single brew cups. Chevy’s Cruze Eco will get up to 42 miles per gallon, but runs on traditional gas. We heard a personal story about the recession from author Caitlin Shetterly. And CliffsNotes is going digital. Here are the songs we played:

  • A Postcard to Nina – Jens LekmanBuy
  • Candy Walls – TrustBuy
  • Out of Gas – Modest MouseBuy
  • Kansai – Ra Ra RiotBuy
  • Baby’s Arms – Kurt VileBuy
