For Marketplace, Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Controversy is brewing in Italy, and it’s possible that a default there could affect us here in the U.S. A major freeway in Los Angeles is shutting down for the weekend, but commentator Kristina Wong didn’t see the big deal. Amazon is trying to go directly to the voters over taxes. Kai reported on entrepreneurs in China, from cosmetics to hot pot restaurants. And he spoke to Stephen Dubner from Freakonomics Radio about what a restaurant does after a dead mouse is found in a salad. And here are the songs we played:

  • The High Road – Broken BellsBuy
  • I Just Wanna Love You (Jay-Z) – Can You Flow?Buy
  • Direction – Sackcloth FashionBuy
  • Talking Wound – P.K. 14Buy
