November 16th, 2015

Episode 392 of 645 episodes

As France begins a new working week, we reflect on the attacks in Paris. Lucy Burton hears from ordinary Parisians and the business editor of France24, Stephen Carroll, on how the shootings will affect the country as it continues to claw its way back economically from its worst recession in 70 years? Is there a conflict between maintaining security and,the tourism sector, for example? Also, Rahul Tandon has a report from India looking at its beef industry, with some states banning beef production altogether. Some fear rising Hindu nationalism there. And finally, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times reflects on her own divorce and the challenge of beginning again. (Photo: Women light candles to commemorate victims of the Paris attacks.
