How worried should we be about inflation? We hear from economist Andy Xie who says it's a problem in China, and from the former British central banker David Blanchflower who says unemployment is a much greater threat.
Plus Jim Rogers, former investment partner of George Soros, on why he's so optimistic about China.
Are match-fixing scandals tarnishing the allure of Indian cricket for investors?
And following Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier's return to Haiti, we hear from journalist and author Riccardo Orizio about how the world's most notorious dictators have managed their money.
Plus we speak to the United Nations Special Representative for business and human rights, John Ruggie, on new guidelines to protect workers and the environment from abuses by big companies.
