The view from the top of business. Presented by Evan Davis, The Bottom Line cuts through confusion, statistics and spin to present a clearer view of the business world, through discussion with people running leading and emerging companies.
Evan asks his guests whether it's time to declare a state of emergency in the world economy and to adopt extreme measures to sort out the euro crisis and the lack of economic activity in the West. They also discuss rumours, hearsay and speculation, and the role they play in business.
Evan is joined in the studio by: Guy Berruyer, chief executive of global business software supplier Sage Group; internet entrepreneur Brent Hoberman, founder of online interior decoration business mydeco.com; Hugh Hendry, co-founder of hedge fund Eclectica Asset Management.
