President Trump is today holding a job creation summit there with captains of US industry. But can he really do much to improve job growth for the economy? We talk to US economist Irwin Stelzer. Meanwhile, a former head of the International Monetary Fund, Rodrigo Rato, gets a four and a half year jail term for stealing money from company credit cards. And the video streaming service Netflix has just bought the global rights to Martin Scorsese's latest film. We talk to Jonathan Taplin, the producer of Martin Scorsese's first major feature film, Mean Streets - released back in 1973.
