Here at Marketplace this week, we are putting a special focus on the threat Greece poses to the global economy. Today, we looked at one U.S. company that is playing a special role in the European country. Meanwhile, members of congress meet today in Washington to look at the threat of a European recession. We look at what Amazon would be without its books, and why Netflix shares are way down today.

And here are the songs we played today:

  • Can’t Be Beat – Quiet VillageBuy
  • In our Nature (Landberg and Skogehall remix) – Jose GonzalezBuy
  • Hotel California – Gypsy KingsBuy
  • Glad – TrafficBuy
  • Funk Bomb – James BrownBuy

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
