Playlist: Jobs numbers and credit unions
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
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?
