For Marketplace, Thursday, July 28, 2011

The Obama administration is set to announce its new fuel standards tomorrow. The SEC is looking into Groupon, and what if it’s offering investors a deal that’s too good to be true. The Waterview Tower in Chicago was supposed to be a luxury hotel and condo building, but now it’s being changed to apartments. A program in Maine is teaching about fish farming. The U.S. government is staying mum on which government programs will get money first, whether or not a debt deal passes. Turkey is reaping economic benefits for being nice to its neighbors. And Jeremy Hobson spoke with author Paul Farmer about his book, Haiti After the Earthquake. Here are the songs we played:

  • Smoke House – Pell Mell
  • Sweet Home Chicago – The Blues Brothers
  • Secrets – The Wooden BirdsBuy
  • Faithful – AnwarriorBuy
  • Valerie – Amy WinehouseBuy
