WBR: Bank Stress Test Results

October 27th, 2014

Episode 57 of 1091 episodes

Most European banks pass a new round of stress tests but more than a dozen still need to raise capital, and were the tests stressful enough? Also in the programme, public anger grows in Hungary at the prospect of a new internet tax. The BBC's Lucy Hooker is there. We talk to Randeep Grewal, founder of independent Chinese energy firm Green Dragon Gas about whether it's possible to do business in China without paying bribes. And Lucy Kellaway from the Financial Times tells us why she prefers analogue to digital when it comes to keeping a diary.
