Merkel ahead in German election

We assess what the result of the German election might mean for Europe's debt crisis. Also, there is continued unrest in South Africa's mining sector, as workers negotiate a new pay offer. We'll hear what it's like doing business in a country subject to all sorts of international sanctions. And finally: why we have lost faith in the future-gazing powers of economists, who failed to predict the economic crisis.
