For Marketplace, Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Kai spoke with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger today about his new book, On China, and his thoughts on Chinese economic growth. New York state attorney general Eric Schneiderman will be probing into banks that issued risky mortgage-backed securities. Tax revenues are topping projections in a few financially strapped states. Google borrowed $3 billion in corporate bonds, showing that this is a great time to borrow. Germany, meanwhile, is growing weary of bailing out its fellow Eurozone countries. And Freakonomics Radio’s Stephen Dubner spoke today about the difference between police officers and bounty hunters, and why that difference matters. Here are the songs we played:
