WBR: World Bank warns of ebola impact 08 Oct 14

October 8th, 2014

Episode 32 of 860 episodes

The World Bank has warned the deadly ebola virus looks set to take a heavy economic, as well as human, toll. We speak to the British company Arco which makes protective suits for use by medical staff in effected areas. New rules which could see bankers jailed for reckless behaviour are ruffling feathers in the British banking establishment. Philip Augar from TSB gives his view. As EU leaders meet to discuss the ongoing problem of unemployment we speak to Spaniards who have gone to Latin America to seek work. And we have a special report on corporate espionage.
