For Marketplace, Friday, July 15, 2011

In the wrap-up of our series on China, The Five-Year Plan, Kai reported on randomly meeting actor Bill Paxton in Shanghai, and about the future of American business in China. Congressman Jim Cooper voiced his concerns about his fellow lawmakers, and their current inability to work together to agree on important decisions. The S&P continues to threaten to downgrade the U.S. And we had the weekly wrap with Sudeep Reddy from the Wall Street Journal and Leigh Gallagher from Fortune magazine. Here are the songs we played:

  • Ashes of the Pagoda – Guitar GardenBuy
