Christine Lagarde's challenges at the ECB
There are challenges ahead when Christine Lagarde takes over at the European Central Bank. Her predecessor Mario Draghi has already restarted quantitative easing as the Eurozone seems headed back into recession. Markets.com's chief market analyst Neil Wilson explains how QE works, and Peter Brown, managing director of Baggot Investment Partners in Dublin tells us why he thinks it's a bad idea. Peter Praet who was until recently chief economist of the ECB makes the case for QE. And we get wider context from Maria Demertzis, deputy director of the Bruegel think tank in Brussels. Also in the programme, mobile phones have been buzzing back into life for the first time in over two months in India-controlled Kashmir. The BBC's Aamir Peerzada has been talking to some of those affected and explains the background. Plus we travel to the Texas State Fair to find out about the money that can be made by coming up with outlandish culinary creations such as deep fried butter.

Stephen Schwarzman talks to World Business Report
We talk to the billionaire chief executive of one of the world's biggest investment firms. What's the secret behind the success of Stephen Schwarzman and Blackstone? And how does Mr Schwarzman counter the criticism that his private equity company sacrifices long-term prosperity for short term financial gain? Also in the programme, Poland's governing Law and Justice party has claimed victory in Sunday's election. Jan Sienski from Politico was covering the count in Warsaw and tells us pledges to boost welfare spending partly explain the party's success. Plus our regular workplace commentator, Pilita Clark of the Financial Times, asks whether it's ever acceptable to swear in the office.

Polish governing party set for election victory
The ruling Law and Justice party has clashed with the European Commission over migration and its attempts to gain more control over the judiciary. We ask the BBC's Adam Easton why the party is so popular with the electorate. Also in the programme, we speak to one Irish business owner about the potential costs of a hard Brexit. We also ask Professor Sarah Smith, chair of the Royal Economics Society women's committee, why it's important to get people from a range of backgrounds interested in the dismal science.
