For Marketplace, Thursday, March 31, 2011

French President Nicolas Sarkozy visited Japan today, looking into the nuclear crisis there. Here in the U.S., Advanced Research Project Agency – Energy, or ARPA-E, is leading the charge for innovation in sustainability. In budget news, businesses are trying getting wary about the debt ceiling. California budget cuts hit community colleges.

PR professionals have had to change their strategies in recent years, to stay in step with the digital world. Commentator Rob Walker argues against the “dislike” button on Facebook. And Kai spoke with author John Mauldin about his new book “Endgame,” and the debt supercycle. And here are the songs we played:

  • Sim Sala Bim – Fleet Foxes
  • Coma Summer – WeekendBuy
  • Come On – Melted ToysBuy
  • Sun Videos – Monster RallyBuy
  • Without You – Rainbow Arabia
