Posted by Chau Tu
For Marketplace, Friday, November 4, 2011
The economy added 80,000 jobs last month, which is low, but could be the new normal for jobs numbers. Bank Transfer Day is tomorrow, and credit unions are benefiting from big banks’ charges and fees. The G20 countries debate a Greek referendum. The IMF has become a key player in the Europe talks. We took a look whether social networking and social media really matter. Kai spoke with Leigh Gallagher and Felix Salmon for the Weekly Wrap, and to author Mark Bowden about his new book, “Worm: The First Digital World War.” And here are the songs we played:
- Let the Music – OddiseeBuy
- Changing – Airborne Toxic EventBuy
- D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune) – Jay-ZBuy
- Right Round – Flo RidaBuy
