For Marketplace Morning Report, Tues., Oct. 4, 2011

Apple’s first product announcement since Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO is happening today. Rumors are flying about what the new products might be. We hear from two authors — Lawrence Lessig and Ron Suskind — about the problems with Washington we fact today. Chinese citizens worry that the pace of growth ignores the possible harm, and a report says that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac knew about robosigning and other foreclosure wrongdoing far we before we did.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Margerine Rock – StereolabBuy
  • HK Cinema Funk – Yuuki MatthewsBuy
  • The Room I’m Hiding in – Okkervil RiverBuy
  • Mange – Deer Tick
  • Mujeres – El RemolonBuy
