Swiss vote to curb bosses' pay

Duration:
28 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 04 March 2013

The Swiss have voted by a large majority to impose limits on what company executives are paid. We ask what effect the vote will have on business life in Switzerland and whether other countries may now follow the Swiss lead. Also we're in Portugal to hear pleas for more time for the debt-stricken country to pay back its bailout funds. We hear from the South Korean traders angry about Japanese claims over a group of disputed islands - and regular commentator Lucy Kellaway asks whether children could help clean up the banking industry.
