ICYMI: Covering Moore’s tornado, the dark side of QE and other stories you should listen to

Sarah Gilbert May 28, 2013

Every week, one Marketplace staff member offers their favorite stories from the past week. Here are some of the stories that caught my attention this past week.

  • Delta’s chief executive officer, Richard Anderson, discusses the industry, mergers, passenger fees and why Delta thinks it’s about to have its most profitable year ever.
  • Stacey Vanek Smith had a lovely bit of writing around a smart conceit on tax havens and Manhattan, carried just far enough and no further.
  • Noel King’s story on young athletes had fresh insight, great tape, smartly-structured. Yet another knock-out piece from Noel!
