Playlist: The state of the states and debt talks
Posted by Daryl Paranada
For Marketplace Morning Report, Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Here are today’s top headlines from the Marketplace Morning Report and from around the web.
Before we get to our coverage of the debt talks, let’s start with the latest entry in our Big Book section. A new book maps out how the economies of each of the states are vastly different from one another.
And now onto our debt talks coverage… After months of debate, only two debt plans are currently on the table. Washington took to the airwaves yesterday to explain why there was still no plan to raise the debt ceiling as Wall Street held its breath. Meanwhile, investors are turning to the Swiss franc for safety amid debt fears.
Here are the songs we played today:
- Last Fare — Little PeopleBuy
- Fefe Naa Efe — Fela KutiBuy
- Hummer — FoalsBuy
- Savage Beast — MadvillainBuy
- Heard Them Stirring — Fleet Foxes
