For Marketplace, Thursday, September 15, 2011

One rogue trader caused UBS an estimated $2 billion in losses — how did that happen? Central banks from global economic powers are offering short-term loans to Europe to help out with its debt crisis. We delved deeper into the Solyndra controversy. A mecca of health care jobs is rising in Detroit, but is that a good thing? We hear from someone who just passed their 40s and their job situation. And Kai spoke with Sylvia Nasar, author of “A Beautiful Mind,” about her new book on the great minds of economics. Here are the songs we played:

  • La Femme Ressort – La FemmeBuy
  • E.Z. L.A. – Folk ImplosionBuy
