For Marketplace, Wed., Aug. 10, 2011

Where the market is going is anyone’s guess at this point. Are we looking at a repeat of 2008? Marketplace’s Heidi Moore explains the difference between then and now. Commentator Robert Reich argues that by focusing on debt and deficits, Washington policy makers are completely missing what’s really wrong with the U.S. economy. Thus, a double dip appears to be on the way. Jennifer Collins takes a look at the debut of the first of the U.S. Postal Service’s “village post offices.” And the ups and downs in the market hit the energy sector. Host Kai Ryssdal talks with from The Black Eyed Peas about his campaign to get kids interested in science and technology. And finally, we give the last word to the new U.S. poet laureate.

Here are the songs we played today:

  • No One’s Gonna Love You – Cee Lo GreenBuy
  • Little Man – Little DragonBuy
  • Symphonie Fantastique: March to the Scaffold – Hector BerliozBuy
  • Just Can’t Get Enough – The Black Eyed PeasBuy
