For Marketplace Morning Report, Thur., Sept. 15, 2011

We celebrate a not-so-happy anniversary today -- it's been three years since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. Our economy still hasn't recovered from that mess, with rising foreclosure numbers in the U.S.. Everyone from Tim Geithner to the major central banks across the world are hoping to find a cure to the ailing economy.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Futuristic Casket - PhantogramBuy
  • 1991 - Crystal CastlesBuy
  • I Wanna Be Your Lover - PrinceBuy
  • I Get Around - DragonetteBuy
  • Montanita - RatatatBuy

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
