Fallout from the US Debt Crisis

We're in Jackson, Mississippi to measure the mood after a deal to end the US government shutdown, but there's no outbreak of consensus in Washington.

Plus we'll be focusing on the global problem of youth unemployment with a special report from Ghana. And why the markets are going ga-ga for Google as the search engine clicks all the right boxes with investors. We look ahead to China's growth figures. Plus how a 52-year-old UK businessman whose daytime job is selling sunglasses has become one of the world's most feared - and followed - food critics. And we're joined throughout by Shai Oster of Bloomberg in Hong Kong and Kevin Roose of New York Magazine in California.
