In a packed Business Daily today, we look at the economic factors behind Poland's election of a new right-of-centre anti-EU government, in the expert hands of Dr Jan Culik, a lecturer in central European politics at the University of Glasgow. Also in the programme, we get the view on China's stumbling economy from the head of the world's largest advertising firm, Sir Martin Sorrell. And Dr Cori Lathan, the head of a new US App developer Anthrotronix, explains why - especially as we grow older - we should all be monitoring our brain health, just as we track our blood pressure and heart rate. And finally Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times looks at why two of the world's largest consultancies have ditched staff appraisals - ironic, she says, since they make a large slice of their money selling the process to others.
