China's Panama Papers

The firm at the centre of the Panama Papers leak saw nearly a third of its entire business come from Hong Kong and China. Christopher Balding, associate professor at the HSBC Business School in Hong Kong, explains why Chinese people are so keen to get their money out of the country, and how the scandal might affect China's leaders. The BBC's economics editor Kamal Ahmed speaks to the prize-winning economist Thomas Piketty, and Akbar Hossain reports from Bangladesh on the arsenic poisoning people's water supply.
