Upbeat IMF Economic Forecast

The latest global economic report from the IMF dissected by the Wall Street Journal's Michael Casey. Also, UC Berkeley's Ken Jacobs and The Motley Fool's David Kuo examine the World Economic Forum and ask what is the point of such a gathering? In Davos we spoke to campaign group Crossroads who are using the gathering to highlight the plight of refugees. It wants Davos attendees to take part in its refugee run experience to remind them of the plight of millions of displaced people. Their senior spokesman David Begbie told us what kind of simulation they should be prepared for. We speak to the BBC's Martin Patience who is outside the Beijing courtroom where a group of anti-corruption activists are being tried. And, we hear from Rome where the Vatican is being drawn into yet another financial scandal.
