The Future of Air Passenger Safety

Following a string of fatal plane crashes, we ask what the industry can do to make us feel safer - the Chief Executive of Air France tells us that the air transport system is 'still very safe'. President Obama attacked firms that practice 'corporate inversions' as unpatriotic, because they switch their tax base from the US to countries where they pay less tax, such as Ireland and the Netherlands. We speak to somebody from the CATO institute, who says Obama's tax reform 'sounds sensible' in principle - but implementation will be controversial. Finally, we take a look back at the week's biggest global business stories with Simon Constable, a columnist with the Wall Street Journal in New York, and Vaiju Naravane of the Hindu newspaper in Paris.
