For Marketplace, Thu., Aug. 11, 2011

The stock market roller coaster ride continues into Thursday, this time swinging up. Markets across the world are trying to make up their minds about the U.S. economy, while Europeans face uncertainty over France’s banks. Can the congressional budget super-committee make the tough choices? Marketplace economics correspondent Chris Farrell argues the U.S. debt mess is about revenues. “Fracking” gets new regulations, forcing companies to disclose data about chemicals. A new cigarette tax in Cleveland creates revenue for local arts programs. And the U.S. imposes new sanctions on Syria.

Here are the songs we played today:

  • Rolling With A Dub – Ari RozeBuy
  • Southbound – Blue ScholarsBuy
  • Cannibal Courtship – Dengue FeverBuy
  • Port of Call – Beirut
