On this week's show: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - we are talking BRICS. They are the world's emerging powers but what unites them and what divides them?

Plus, India is growing fast and churning out students, but are they really qualified to take on the top jobs?

And, America's mountain of debt - is there a credible plan to tackle it? The organisation that has helped bail out Eurozone nations thinks not.

This episode of Counting the Cost aired from Friday, April 15, 2011.
