Greece needs more money. It has been bailed out by the IMF, but long term the Eurozone is running out of easy options to deal with Greece's debt crisis. Whatever happens, some tax payers, investors and central banks stand to lose tens of billions of dollars.

Also, Japan Incorporated: After the nuclear disaster in March we take a look at where the slow road to recovery might end up. 

And in Malaysia: As building gets underway on a new rare-earths plant, what is all the fuss about?

We also look at the big tech tie-up between Microsoft and Skype, and what effect that might have on both companies.  

This episode of Counting the Cost can be seen from Friday, May 13, at the following times GMT: Friday: 2230; Saturday: 0930; Sunday: 0330; Monday: 1630.
