For Marketplace Morning Report, Mon., Sept. 5, 2011

The demand is high for jobs, and that means that even college graduates have seen their average wages drop in the last decade. The Venice Film Festival struggles to stay afloat in the tough European economy by trying to court American filmmakers. PBR moves beyond hipsters, trying to court a more mainstream clientele. And the head of the International Monetary Fund says we need to spend, not cut, to save the ailing economy.

And here are the songs we played today.
