Upbeat news for the US jobs market

On World Business Report today we decode the latest US jobs figures. The US economy created 236,000 jobs in February - much more than expected. We have a special report from New York.

And as part of the BBC's "What If" season and to coincide with International Womens Day we ask "what if there were more women in work?"

Plus - as China's new football season kicks off we talk to the BBC's John Sudworth outside a soccer stadium in Guangzhou about how Chinese football is tackling match-fixing and corruption.

And in a week dominated China's change of rulers, the death of Hugo Chavez, and America's apparent upturn in fortunes...we review a dramatic week in business with Matthew Bishop from the Economist and Diane Brady from Bloomberg.
