Episode 274 of 836 episodes

When it comes to negotiations with creditors, Athens always takes it to the brink. Presenter Manuela Saragosa speaks to Yannis Dimarakis of Scotwork Hellas, a negotiating consultancy in Athens, about Greece's strategy. Also, could green energy do for Africa's power networks what mobile telephony did for the continent's phone networks? Presenter Ed Butler gives us the lowdown from the World Economic Forum in Capetown, South Africa, where he hears from Caroline Kende-Robb, executive director of the Africa Progress Panel, as well as Mamadou Toure of GE Africa. Plus, we get reaction from Nhlanhla Nene, South Africa's finance minister, about the corruption scandal at Fifa. And Robert Boland, law professor with a focus on sports at New York University, tells us why sponsors' patience with Fifa has a time limit.
