For Marketplace, Tuesday, September 6, 2011

We talked jobs on today’s show, from its language — its meaning and political overtones — to the current landscape and the different jobs we’ve lost. Freakonomics’ Stephen Dubner spoke about hurricane prevention. And Kai took a close look at the legacy left behind after the 9/11 attacks. Here are the songs we played:

  • Smokehouse – Pell Mell
  • Brain Freeze – Sackcloth FashionBuy
  • Let the Music – OddiseeBuy
  • Leta O’Steen. Design Assistance By John Piper – LabradfordBuy
