The central bank has threatened to sue the New York Federal Reserve after almost $100m was reported to have been withdrawn, with reports that some of the funds had been traced to the Philippines and recovered. John Coffee from Columbia Law School discusses what could have happened. Also we hear how deflation is bringing Zimbabwe to a standstill. How viable are the economic proposals of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump? Economist Roger Bootle discusses the ‘outsiders’ in the US presidential election. And on International Women’s Day, we hear about the work of the organisation Spring with young women in Africa – plus the chair of the UK’s Institute of Directors Lady Barbara Judge discusses how support for working mothers can be improved.
