Saying It Straight  

Tall stories, strange names, ancient giants and linguistic confusion. Kate Adie introduces correspondents' stories. Colin Freeman, in the Pakistani city of Quetta, wonders if it is still a Taliban stronghold. Chris Haslam, in Zambia, is shocked by some of the strange names given to children. Tim Ecott is among giants on Mexico's Baja Peninsula - both in the ocean and on land. Sodaba Haidare visits a special restaurant in the Afghan capital Kabul which is empowering women victims of domestic abuse. And Joanna Robertson reaches for the NervenTee in Italy's South Tyrol region - but which language should she use? More tea please!

‘Vale a pena tirar o dinheiro da previdência privada PGBL?’  

A taxa mais importante é a taxa de administração. Ao pagar 3,4% ao ano todos os anos você está praticamente perdendo a chance de vencer a inflação. A taxa de carregamento de 2,5% não é simpática, mas pelo menos só incide uma vez sobre o seu capital.

Londres: suma y sigue  

La ola de terrorismo islámico en Europa sigue su curso. Ayer fue Londres la capital del terror y del dolor. A primera hora de la tarde un terrorista arrolló con un automóvil todoterreno a varias decenas de personas que caminaban sobre el céntrico puente de Westminster. Hecho esto se empotró contra la verja del Parlamento británico donde apuñaló a uno de los policías que custodian su entrada. Acto seguido fue abatido a tiros. Del atentado de Londres, uno más de esta desconcertante cadena de crímenes imprevisibles que golpean en cualquier lugar y a cualquier hora, pueden extraerse valiosas conclusiones. No muy diferentes de las de Niza, Bruselas o Berlín pero igualmente útiles. La primera de ellas es que este tipo de terrorismo es simplemente incontenible, al menos a corto plazo.

Episode 237: Sheelah Kolhatkar  

Sheelah Kolhatkar is a staff writer at The New Yorker and the author of Black Edge: Inside Information, Dirty Money, and the Quest to Bring Down the Most Wanted Man on Wall Street.

“Suddenly the financial crisis happened and all this stuff that had been hidden from view came out into the open. It was like, ‘Oh, this was actually all kind of a big façade.’ And there was all this fraud and stealing and manipulation and corruption, and all these other things going on underneath the whole shiny rock star surface. And that really also demonstrated to people how connected business stories, or anything to do with money, are to everything else going on. I mean, really almost everything that happens in our world, if you trace it back to its source, it’s money at the root of it.”

Retailers Attack Proposed US Border Tax  

A significant plan on tax reform is coming from the Trump Administration. Border Adjustment Tax (BAT) would be paid on goods imported into America and is meant to even out imbalances in money flows across borders. But the National Retail Federation says the BAT would kill jobs and increase costs on everyday necessities. Their leaders meet with Congress on Wednesday to try and kill BAT. We speak to their Senior Vice President for Government Relations, David French. Scotland's first minister Nicola Sturgeon said today that the country's future should be decided by the people who live there rather than having it "imposed upon us". But what would Scotland's economic prospects be if the country voted to go it alone? Roger Bootle, Chairman of Capital Economics tells us the UK's future should not be decided on the basis of the Brexit vote. Back in the eighteenth century gin didn't have a good reputation in Britain. It was nicknamed 'mother's ruin' because of the disastrous effects of the alcoholic drink on the family and the wider economy. But fast forward to the 21st century and gin is rising in popularity and cost, as Mike Johnson reports. All this and more discussed with our two guests throughout the show. Jyoti Malhotra, Senior Journalist and President, South Asian Women in Media, in Delhi and Adam Allington, of Marketplace in Washington.

563: Republicans Move to Block Their Own Bill  

It a move of pure defiance the freedom caucus appears to have the votes necessary to block the new Republican health care replacement. To call it a replacement is quite a stretch. In reality, it is a modification of the Affordable Care Act that leaves in place most of the mandates from the ACA. It's a far cry from the platform Republicans have run on for the last eight years. This hasn't stopped the Republican leadership from spreading doom and gloom. In an attempt to secure passage of the new Obamacare Lite bill, they are suggesting that if they cannot pass healthcare that tax cuts might be in jeopardy. Today I'll break down the why and tell you exactly what you need to know. *** Gorsuch is on Capital Hill this week giving testimony for his supreme court nomination. There's not much here worth covering, but that hasn't stopped the media from running the hearings in full. I've been watching for the last hour, and it's been night but Democrats attempting to catch Gorsuch in an incriminating statement while Republicans try to protect him. Gorsuch doesn't seem to need much protection. In my opinion, he has handled himself with incredible poise and clarity. I cannot see how he could not be confirmed. *** Finally, Twitter is shutting down accounts in record number. More than 636,000 accounts have been terminated due to what Twitter calls "extremism." Despite what some would like you to believe, this is not a freedom of speech issue. You don't have the right to say whatever you want on Twitter's platform. But this does cause me some concern when I think about how fragile the first amendment has become. Twitters hard line is just one example of how our society is becoming increasingly intolerant of views with which we disagree. Thanks so much for listening. Don't forget to like and share the show!

FBI Confirms Trump-Russia Investigation  

FBI director James Comey has confirmed for the first time that the FBI is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. We get analysis from Courtney Weaver, political correspondent at the Financial Times in Washington. The number of countries banning meat from Brazil continues to rise, after allegations health inspectors were bribed to allow rotten meat to go on sale. We hear from Neil Shearing at consultancy Capital Economics and Paul Kiernan the Rio de Janeiro correspondent for the Wall Street Journal. Since the last referendum on Scottish independence in September 2014 there's been a new First Minister of Scotland. There's also a new UK Prime Minister. Brexit is underway and there's a potential second referendum to discuss. Our reporter Dave Howard has been to Scotland's oil centre, Aberdeen, to see the way the Scottish economy has changed since the last referendum. Google has apologised after adverts from major firms and government agencies appeared next to extremist content on its YouTube website. The big UK retailer Marks and Spencer has become the latest firm to pull its online ads over the issue. We hear from Paul Smith, director-general of ISBA which represents British advertisers. Our weekly commentator Lucy Kellaway, of the Financial Times, is on her final countdown. Later this year she'll leave journalism to start a new career as a maths teacher. They say that a change is as good as a rest but Lucy says her decision to move on goes deeper than that. We look at the business stories gripping other parts of the globe with the BBC's Rahul Tandon in the Indian city of Kolkata. And we're joined throughout the programme by two guests on opposite sides of the Pacific; in New York, José Martín, a radical organizer and researcher of social unrest and David Kuo of the Motley Fool website, who's in Singapore.

Laptop Cabin Ban on Some UK & US Flights  

UK and US authorities have banned large electronic items in cabin baggage on some flights. Affected airports include some of the busiest hubs in the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa. Tom Blank, a former security policy chief of the US Transportation Security Administration, explains why the ban has been implemented. Also in the programme, the BBC's Joe Miller gets a glimpse of the robotic world of the future from digital companies at the CeBIT technology conference in Hanover, Germany. Scotland's government is debating a new independence referendum, and we get the views of our regular economic commentator Roger Bootle of Capital Economics. In a bid to improve road safety, the Japanese government is offering pensioners who give up driving discounts on noodles, taxis and even funerals. Matt Saunders is road test editor at the motoring website Autocar, and tells us what he makes of the initiative. Plus, as gin undergoes a surge in popularity around the world, the BBC's Mike Johnson reports from the London Gin Festival.
