For Marketplace, Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Today we kicked off a two-part series looking into how Chinese students gain admission into U.S. colleges. Italians are reacting to the news that Prime Minister Berlusconi will eventually resign. And though they both have debt problems, Italy and Greece aren’t the same. Bond investors in Italy are starting to demand as high as 7 percent interest rates.

Here in the U.S., Alaska Airlines begins boarding planes that being flown, in part, on biofuels. Three mayors discussed their cities’ current financial situations. And commentator Megan McArdle talked about creating jobs for the 99 percent. Here are the songs we played:

  • Hold On – NicolayBuy
  • What’s Your Priority – D-TensionBuy
  • The High Road – Broken BellsBuy
  • We Are – AnwarriorBuy
  • Wonderwall – OasisBuy
