For Marketplace Morning Report, Thur., Oct. 20, 2011
Reports are out this morning that the former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi has been captured and killed. The Senate is reviewing the practice of 30-year fixed-rate mortgages; it could also soon start offering visas to foreigners who spend enough money on buying a home in the U.S. In response to the claims by Occupy Wall Street protesters that America’s middle class is being forgotten, we speak with Chris Farrell about what countries might be getting it right.
And here are the songs we played today:
- Cannibal Courtship – Dengue FeverBuy
- Disco China – GoblinBuy
- Talk to Me Feat. Sena (Waxos Instrumental List) – DJ VadimBuy
- Roots Dub Princess – Linval ThompsonBuy
- Tripped and Fell in Love – YACHTBuy
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
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?
