ECB Acts to Halt Deflation

The European Central Bank pulls out all the stops to stop falling prices across the eurozone. We hear from former economic adviser to President Carter, Barry Bosworth, now with the Brookings Institution. Also Lego bows to demand and introduces a new range of female scientist figurines. And can you identify when a comment posted on Twitter is serious or sarcastic? The US Secret Service is asking for software to help it determine just that. Presenter Roger Hearing is joined by Elizabeth Nolan Brown of the libertarian magazine Reason.com in Washington and Heather Timmons, Asia correspondent of the economics website Quartz in Hong Kong.
