For Marketplace Morning Report, Mon., Sept. 26, 2011

The world might just be drawing closer to a solution to the debt crisis -- or closer to a global financial breakdown if governments can't get their acts together. Protestors have been taking to the streets in New York to protest against... well, they all seem to have different ideas about what the problem is, exactly. The first Boeing Dreamliner gets shipped to to Japan this week, and one town in California bets on its investments in solar power.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • An Argument With Myself - Jens LekmanBuy
  • Myriad Harbor - New PornographersBuy
  • Circle of Life - Lebo M.Buy
  • Soft - Washed OutBuy
  • Lover Of Mine - Beach HouseBuy

“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
