Bailout fallout: Brazil criticises IMF over Greece

29 minutes
First broadcast:
Friday 09 August 2013

Brazil calls for changes to the way the International Monetary Fund (IMF) packages up financial rescues for eurozone countries like Greece. It comes after Brazil's representative to the IMF abstained from a vote to approve the latest batch of aid for Athens. We talk to the BBC's technology correspondent, Fiona Graham, about the pills that text and tweet patients when taken. Our Beijing correspondent Martin Patience reports on the increasingly difficult job hunt facing Chinese graduates. We find out why the price of lobster has been plummeting, and we wrap up a week that's included cyberbullying on social networking websites, the sale of the Washington Post, and a lab-made beefburger.
