For Marketplace, Thu., July 14, 2011

Moody’s puts the U.S. on notice as lawmakers fight over the national debt. How likely is a credit rating downgrade? Like many public colleges, the University of California is raising tuition, putting the squeeze on students. Google+ plans to open up service to select businesses a little earlier than expected. We explore the marriage market in China in part four of “The Five Year Plan.” Host Kai Ryssdal visits the place where Shanghai parents look for suitable partners for their kids every weekend. Lastly we look at two generation of Chinese and their different perspectives on what it means to be part of the middle class.

Here are the songs we played:

  • American West – Sun AirwayBuy
  • Go Outside (2 Bears Remix) – Cults
  • Before Tigers (CFCF Remix) – HEALTHBuy
