For Marketplace, Monday, March 28, 2011

Today, we dissected the costs of the U.S.’s involvement in Libya. The U.S. Treasury has OKed rebel oil sales there, as long as they remain unconnected with Colonel Gaddafi’s regime. Egypt, meanwhile, continues its digital revolution post-Mubarak.

Facebook looks like it’s getting ready to go public, reportedly looking to tap former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs to manage communications. With the nuclear situation in Japan worsening, so is the financial status of the reactors’ owner, one of Japan’s largest electric utilities. Kai spoke with the editor-in-chief of Maer Roshan about his new website on addiction and recovery. And we heard about how companies are using copyrights to make money off of YouTube. Here are the songs we played:

  • Love Jones – J DillaBuy
  • Westworld – JapancakesBuy
  • Deep Red Bells – Neko CaseBuy
  • Classical Gas – Mason WilliamsBuy
  • The Coast is Clear (for Fireworks) – Nobody
