For Marketplace Morning Report, Wed., Sept. 14, 2011

It’s all Greek to us — the mounting European debt crisis, that is. Some experts are wondering whether Greece could be the next Lehman Brothers and come crashing down; but others say that headlines might have us over-reacting, and that we have known this was coming for a while. We caught up with Bill Gates over why he thinks energy research should follow the path of the Internet. The Big Three feel the heat to reach a deal with their auto workers, and retailers are gearing up for the holiday season, good or bad.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Amber – Electric Guest
  • Anything New – BibioBuy
  • Trav’lin’ All Alone (Nickodemus & Zeb Remix) – Billie HolidayBuy
  • Violent Life – Blonde RedheadBuy
  • Rollout (My Business) – LudacrisBuy
