For Marketplace, Wednesday, September 7, 2011

On today’s show, we heard about the new normal in today’s economic climate, how to deal with it and what its long-term impact will be. More and more people are finding themselves falling into contract work. The struggling Yahoo fired its CEO. A new statistic shows that 15% of Americans go hungry. Texas continues to battle devastating fires. And continuing our series on the impact of 9/11, we took a look at how that event has changed disaster preparation. Here are the songs we played:

  • Strange Chemistry – Sackcloth FashionBuy
  • Be First – KabooseBuy
  • Tight Eyes – Nicolay & KayBuy
  • Young + Restless – D-TensionBuy
