For Marketplace Morning Report, Thur., Sept. 22, 2011
The thing that is driving the market plummet this morning is the Fed, and its action yesterday to shift its investment portfolio toward long-term bonds in a move called “Operation Twist“. Carmax just reported, and used car sales rose between 4 and 5 percent.
And here are the songs we played today:
- New West – Cult of YouthBuy
- Without You – Rainbow ArabiaBuy
- Vanilla Minus – Gold PandaBuy
- San Pedro – MogwaiBuy
- The Shy Retirer – Arab StrapBuy
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
