Mosul Declared Liberated from Islamic State

Global business news, with live guests and contributions from Asia and the USA.

The fighting is over in Mosul - but how can Iraq rebuild its second city? And how long will it take? We hear from Matthew Schweitzer of the Education for Peace in Iraq Center. The BBC’s Tamasin Ford reports from Abidjan in Ivory Coast about the informal economy of parkers - groups of men who make a living out of helping people park their cars. Mother Teresa was known throughout the world for her work helping the poor. Is it right for the Missionaries of Charity to copyright the garment that made them famous, and that might make them money? We ask veteran Catholic journalist, John Allen. Roger Hearing is joined throughout the programme by writer and researcher Parag Khanna from the Centre on Asia and Globalisation in Singapore, and Diana Furchtgott-Roth, Director of the Economics21 Manhattan Institute in Washington.
