For Marketplace, Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Is Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposed 2012 budget realistic? As the possibility of a government shutdown looms, the prospect of getting your tax refund filed soon may be out of the question, unless you e-filed, that is.. Commentator Robert Reich said he believed the discussions surrounding the shutdown are missing one key element. The Wall Street Journal’s Leslie Scism discussed the future of Berkshire Hathaway in light of the Sokol scandal. The International Monetary Fund says the Palestinian Authority has put into place the economic reforms needed for statehood.

It looks like the Dish Network will be purchasing the long-troubled Blockbuster. And we heard how food prices can vary all across the world, and why. And here are the songs we played:

  • Sick of You – CakeBuy
  • Knocked Up – Kings of LeonBuy
  • Kill Your Television – Ned’s Atomic DustbinBuy
  • Moonshine – MatlockBuy
  • Sensual Seduction (Snoop Dogg) – Instrumental Hip Hop Beat MakersBuy
  • What’s Crazy – OddiseeBuy
