The economic debate over Britain's continued membership of the European Union is complex, with each side claiming to have the facts despite the inexact nature of economics and economic forecasting. We speak Rick Shenkman, journalist and author of 'Political Animals', about the difficulties of winning over an electorate with economic arguments. Also, the BBC's Rahul Tandon reports from the Indian state of West Bengal about how the final stages of the elections there are affecting business .And James Rickards, author of 'The New Case for Gold' explains why he thinks the precious metal still underpins the US dollar, even though America abandoned the Gold Standard back in the 1970s.
