Twilight premiere
Episode Description 
“The Fault in Our Stars” is the latest movie adaptation of a young adult book. With the box-office success of Twilight, Hunger Games, and others, is it time to shelve the notion that males aged 18-34 are what drive big blockbusters? Then, we take a closer look at the NCAA student athlete trial that begins next week. And after, as the job market continues to wade, it indicates that people are still very hesitant to take job risks, including quitting the job they've got, to pursue a new job, or borrow for more education to improve their credentials. But, voluntary quitting is starting to pick up again-and for younger workers especially, that's a hopeful sign. Also, did you know that a town in Pakistan creates 80 percent of the world’s soccer balls? A group of notable economists got together to use it as a laboratory to test how best to introduce innovation. We investigate.
