Episode Summary

EDIT
January 15, 2012 - Groupon, Qatar, Jake
AIRED:

Lesley Stahl interviews 31-year old Andrew Mason, founder and CEO of Groupon, the multibillion dollar Internet coupon company that, according to Forbes, is the fastest growing company in the world.

Bob Simon profiles the tiny and wealthy Middle Eastern nation of Qatar, whose 250,000 citizens are the richest in the world. The nation has no income taxes and free health care, education and electricity. The country is home to the Arab world's only independent television news station, Al Jazeera, which is seen as a large influence in launching the Arab Spring.

Morley Safer profiles Jake Barnett who, at 13 years of age, is attending college and tutoring his much older fellow students. The math and science genius was already taking college courses at the age of eight.
