For Marketplace, Friday, July 1, 2011

Today’s show was hosted live from the Aspen Ideas, and we heard the weekly wrap with New York bureau chief Heidi Moore and Reuters’ Chrystia Freeland, as well as a roundtable on sustainability with energy industry leaders Marvin Odum, CEO of Shell; James Rogers, CEO of Duke Energy; and Lynn Jurich, CEO of Sun Run. We also heard about startups in Silicon Valley that may be pushing the area back to top form.

The show today had live musical bridges by Jai Vatuk.
