Listen in pop-out player

The latest figures from the United States indicate a surprisingly weak jobs situation. Meanwhile the Chinese say they have probably overtaken the US as the world's largest trader. We talk about the race for Africa, as China and Japan argue over who can woo the country the fastest. Plus, the controversy over an auction for a licence to kill an endangered black rhino in Namibia. And a look back at the week's biggest news stories with guests Mark Gilbert from Bloomberg's London bureau and Simon Constable from the Wall Street Journal in Washington.
