Sharif chooses veteran to run Pakistan's shattered economy

Supporters of former Pakistani Prime Minister and head of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N), Nawaz Sharif, carry portraits of Sharif as they celebrate the victory of their party a day after landmark general elections, in Lahore, on May 12, 2013.

Voters in Pakistan have put Nawaz Sharif back in power, his third time as prime minister. Sharif says he will focus on fixing Pakistan's broken economy. For that job, he’s chosen an old hand. Ishaq Dar will reportedly become Pakistan's next finance minister. He has served in that position twice before. 

Marketplace Morning Report host David Brancaccio speaks with BBC Pakistan correspondent Shahzeb Jillani about Pakistan's economy and the man now charged with the task of running it.
