Amazon debuted its latest Kindle, the Fire, today, and it could be the best competitor to Apple’s iPad. Google is looking to invest in solar energy. Tainted cantaloupes have left 13 dead and is causing a melon scare. Family Dollar is reporting increased profits. Detroit is seeing a boom in health care jobs. Commentator David Frum discussed conservative recession responses from past and present. And we heard the latest on the eurozone talks. Here are the songs we played:

  • My President – Instrumental IconsBuy
  • Charlane’s Allure – Tom DudaBuy

Marketplace is on a mission.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
