For Marketplace, Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Financial rock stars are meeting up at the Bretton Woods Conference for the Economy of the Future. Some, however, like George Soros, seem skeptical. Natural gas may not be as environmentally friendly as previously believed to be. Companies are bringing in a rapid pace of shares, but will it help the economy? The temporary budget is making cuts in earmarks that were never fully wanted in the first place. We also heard about the cuts to farm subsidies in the U.K., and how it might affect the agriculture industry there. The World Bank is making changes due to the revolutions in the Middle East. And author Bryan Caplan advocated for people having more kids and enjoying parenting. And here are the songs we played:

- Drifter – Wild NothingBuy
- Gratisfaction – The StrokesBuy
- Weekend – The Smith WesternsBuy
- Through the Fear – Cult of YouthBuy
