Dipping into deflation: How should Europe's central bank respond to falling prices across the continent? We discuss the pros and cons of pumping billions into the financial sector with Andrew Lilico of Europe Economics and Jorg Kramer, chief economist at Commerzbank. Also in the programme, plugging out: sales of electric cars slip as the oil price falls. We ask David Bailey at Aston Business School how the sector can regain its va-va-voom. Plus we talk to former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers about his support for carbon taxes, as a means of reducing pollution levels. And we visit a prison in Herefordshire where inmates are turning their hands to the production of high-end kitchen products.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
