Should CEOs have term limits?

Evan Davis hosts the business conversation show. CEOs on average serve for just under six years. Would it be better for businesses if CEOs served fixed-term limits?

Guests:

Martin Gilbert, co-ceo, Aberdeen Standard Investments.
Margaret Heffernan, author and entrepreneur
