BizDaily: Ukraine Economy - Corruption and Crash

June 1st, 2015

Episode 267 of 643 episodes

The Ukrainian President says he faces "two wars", one against pro-Russian separatists, the other against endemic corruption. If the latest economic data are a measure, he's losing both. But can the West afford not to bail out Kiev? Staying with corruption, we have a report from Lebanon, where activists are looking at new ways to raise awareness of the cost of graft. And Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times looks at the scourge of what she calls "third-party boasting" on Twitter and Facebook.
