For Marketplace, Wednesday, April 20, 2011

We heard about two very different Louisiana cities that are rebuilding after the BP oil spill last year. Commentator Robert Reich gave his take on why the debt ceiling shouldn’t be affected by party politics. Kai spoke with Fred Lawson from Mills College about the current situation in Syria. Sales of existing home sales are on the rise, but foreclosed homes are still weighing on the market. And the tech industry reports big earnings. Here are the songs we played:

  • What’s Mine is Georges – The MotetBuy
  • Love N Hate – MatlockBuy
  • Wise Dread – DJ DrezBuy
  • We Are – AnwarriorBuy
  • Second Line – Pearl Street Jazz BandBuy

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
