For Marketplace, Thursday, April 28, 2011

Marketplace Morning Report’s Steve Chiotakis reported from Alabama about the fierce storms that have ravaged the area. We heard about how Big Oil is changing, and about how recent developments in Palestine may affect U.S. relations. Many American colleges are expanding their brands to the Middle East, but their record of success has been spotty. Macy’s may introduce electric vehicle charging stations to encourage customers to shop while they charge. Public employees across the nation are deciding to retire earlier than originally planned, in order to take advantage of benefits that may soon be cut. And Kai spoke to producer and director John Papola and economics professor Russ Roberts, the masterminds behind EconStories, a series of hip-hop videos on the economy. And here are the songs we played:

  • Shady Lane/J Vs. S – PavementBuy
  • Believer – John Maus
  • El Cali – MezdekeBuy
  • Mabruk – Bustan AbrahamBuy
  • Got Your Back (ft. Keri Hilson) – T.I.Buy
  • Fight of the Century (Instrumental) – John Papola and Russ Roberts
