For Marketplace, Wed., Aug. 17, 2011

The producer price index is on the rise. Is that a good or bad indicator? A small business in L.A. illustrates what goes into creating a single job in a rough economy. Major corporations are still sitting on a trove of money. General Motors CEO Dan Akerson gives an update on the restructuring of the auto industry. Grim new stats point to the level of child poverty in the U.S. And Marketplace’s Sally Herships checks in on retailers stocking up for the holidays.

Here are the songs we played today:

  • Mela D – Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong OrchestraBuy
  • The Ghost Inside – Broken BellsBuy
  • Pockets – Four TetBuy
  • Super Triangle – The Go! TeamBuy
  • Father And Son – Apollo BrownBuy
  • Movie Finale – MadlibBuy
