For Marketplace, Friday, July 22, 2011

Borders has begun its liquidation sales across the country. Green energy is losing investors. The U.S. government may begin to rent out foreclosed properties to help the housing market. Businesses are busily trying to navigate the social networking wave. Commentator Rob Walker spoke about the early adopters of such social media trends. Gay and lesbian couples will be able to marry in New York beginning Sunday, and some aren’t getting hitched just for love. And we had the weekly wrap and small talk from Dinner Party Download. Here are the songs we played:

  • Walk at Night – CultsBuy
  • King of the Beach – WavvesBuy
  • Believer – John MausBuy
  • Weekend – The Smith WesternsBuy
  • The Way You Wish You Could Live In The Storm – Moonface

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
