August 3rd, 2015

Episode 318 of 679 episodes

Six months after unpegging from the euro, a strong Swiss franc is costing the central bank, and the country's retailers billions in lost revenue. Can it be sustained? Our correspondent, Imogen Foulkes, sends a report from the country. Also, the 'Ignorant Maestro' - Isreali conductor, Itay Talgam who trained under the legendary Leonard Bernstein, explains why company CEOs can learn a great deal from the great orchestral conductors. And, Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times rails against the former boss of Twitter - not for failing to return a corporate profit, but for crimes against the English language.
