BizDaily: Tackling an epidemic

December 1st, 2014

Episode 90 of 676 episodes

Business Daily tackles a potentially very depressing subject - epidemic illness. But it is not all horror and death. We hear how Ebola has taken a terrible toll on the tourist trade in Gambia but that it is nevertheless having less effect on the wider economy of West Africa than you might expect. And a breakthrough in the treatment of HIV in children in the developing world. Plus Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times, on making time for coffee with strangers.
