Booming Brazil and Miracles in Malawi

Brazil seems to be steering a steadier course than many through the current financial storms. But is it, as many claim it is, on course to be one of the most vibrant economies of the 21st Century? Steve Evans is in Sao Paulo, where's he's been talking to a Lebanese immigrant who's set up his own company, as well as Henrique de Campos Meirelles, Governor of the Central Bank.

Meanwhile, Lesley Curwen looks at doing business in Belarus and tackles the issue of unpaid interns - is it fair to work for nothing? And the miracle of Malawi - how that country doubled its production of corn.
