January 27th, 2015

Episode 139 of 678 episodes

We expose a new kind of slave trade: the farming of poor Indians' blood to supply hospital patients. We have a special report from Delhi and we hear from US author, Scott Carney, whose book "The Red Market" examines the billion-dollar global trade in human body parts, and body products, generally. And we have the latest market reaction to an anti-austerity Greek government. Virginie Maisonneuve, deputy CIO and Global Head of Equities at the bond giants PIMCO, explains why she believes a deal will be done with the Troika to ease the Greek debt burden.
