A Tale of Two Economies

Europe tries to avoid deflation as prices fall and growth slows, while the US economy seems to be on the up. But do the latest numbers tell the whole story?

Also, why trans fats could soon be banned from the American diet. And, owned by Dubai but open for business in Essex - the brand new super port marking a turning point in British trading history.

We head to Kilkenomics - the economic comedy festival trying to raise a laugh in Ireland.

Plus, Revathy Ashok of BPAC in Bangalore tells us about their efforts to tackle corruption in local politics from the ground up.
