US government defends surveillance
Global business news, with live guests and contributions from Asia and the USA.
President Obama has defended newly uncovered phone and internet surveillance programmes, arguing they're vital in the fight against terrorism. We ask where the balance lies between the right to privacy and public protection. Also the latest US jobs figures may fail to inspire - but are casual jobs websites helping some people find an income? Presenter Mark Whittaker heads to Watford, the unlikely location for this year's secretive Bilderberg Meetings, to talk to those who want more transparency from these gatherings of the world's business and political elite. And how can Hollywood cash in on China's growing lust for films? We're joined throughout the programme by our guest Sean Turnell of Macquarie University in Sydney.
