For Marketplace, Monday, April 18, 2011

It’s Tax Day today. Bob talked to Joseph Thorndike about the American tax burden and its history. The S&P warned it could lower the U.S. credit rating if the government can’t come up with a plan to cut the federal deficit. T Rowe Price changed the private investing game today when it announced that it owned nearly $200 million of shares in Facebook, and it has put some of those share into its mutual funds. The U.S. Supreme Court is looking at a case involving the right to sue power companies over their greenhouse gas emissions. It’s the one-year anniversary of the BP oil spill, and we looked at why drilling took place miles under the ocean in the first place. And Bob also spoke to Susan Freinkel about our love-hate relationship with plastic. Here are the songs we played:

  • Mash – J Dilla
  • Wrapped in Plastic – Her Space HolidayBuy
  • 1st and 4th – Mux MoolBuy
