For Marketplace, Monday, April 11, 2011

It’s been one month since the major earthquake and tsunami hit Japan; Marketplace reports on the recovering economy. Gas sales had fallen for five straight weeks, which could indicate an economic tipping point. Congress reached a budget deal late last Friday — now we look at what the future holds, and how businesses are preparing for future debt. Robert Samuelson, a columnist for Newsweek and The Washington Post, talked about whether the government is promising more than it can deliver. We also heard stories about the fight over rooster feathers and the differences in medical choices that doctors make for themselves and for their patients. And here are the songs we played:

  • Kansai – Ra Ra RiotBuy
  • Strictly Rule – VetiverBuy
  • The Shy Retirer – Arab StrapBuy
  • Bermuda – KissesBuy
  • Italo – AnathalloBuy
  • Movement – Dam MantleBuy
