For Marketplace, Friday, September 9, 2011

On today’s show, we heard from college students worried about their job futures, and from economists about their thoughts on job creation. Meanwhile, Bank of America is about to lay off nearly 40,000 employees, and solar company Solyndra is filing for bankruptcy.

And with this weekend marking the 10th anniversary since the 9/11 attacks, we heard a few stories about that day. Go here to share yours. And here are the songs we played:

  • (Don’t Let Them) Cool Off – Peter Bjorn and JohnBuy
  • Pro Choice feat. John Legend – Dujeous
  • Tin Man – Future IslandsBuy
  • 1st and 4th – Mux MoolBuy
  • Dobro Improvisation #3 – Phil Cook and His Feat

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