For Marketplace Morning Report, Thur., Sept. 8, 2011

Today, we continue our coverage on the economic impacts of 9/11 with a closer look at the shipping industry. Last night’s Republican presidential debate focused on issues surrounding jobs, Social Security, and minimum wage. A study finds that high doctor fees are the main reason for the huge cost of health care in the U.S. And at last, the super committee on the budget begins its meetings in Washington today.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Artist’s Valley – BibioBuy
  • Star Time 2 – SquarepusherBuy
  • Tower Seven – Thievery CorporationBuy
  • Crayon – ManitobaBuy
  • Grown Man – Jessica Lea Mayfield Buy

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
