India's Gold Fever

Listen in pop-out player

Business Daily hooks up with the World Service's personal finance programme Your Money. Its presenter Paul Lewis is in India and he tells Justin Rowlatt why Indians are so obsessed with gold jewellery, even though they pay a high premium for the stuff. We'll also be learning how a new national identity scheme is allowing some of India's poorest people to open bank accounts for the first time.

Plus: how learning a second language can make you richer and more intelligent and how a telecom's minnow could be set to beat the giants in one of the world's most isolated nations.
