Slowing US jobs growth, and corruption in India

Yet another increase in employment in the world's biggest economy, but by far less than many thought. So will slowing jobs growth in the US mean a delay to the planned slowdown in quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve? World Business Report's Mark Whitaker is in Bangalore, India, throughout the programme, uncovering just how big a problem corruption is in the country. Just ahead of the revealing of the host city for the 2020 Olympics - we ask whether it's something you should really WANT to stage. We take a trip to a food factory in the US midwest with our sister station, Marketplace, and we reflect on the career of acclaimed and Oscar-winning Japanese animation director, Hayao Miyazaki, who's just announced his retirement.
