​New Russian sanctions and Nomi Prins on bank fraud

Our lead story: Despite a fragile new ceasefire that went into effect in Ukraine last week, the United States and Europe agreed Thursday to place additional economic sanctions on Russia over warfare in eastern Ukraine. Erin and RT correspondent Peter Oliver discuss both the political and economic implications.

Then, Erin is joined by Nomi Prins, author of “All the President’s Bankers” and senior fellow at Demos, to talk about bank fraud and corporate culture. Prins takes on numerous sticky issues from MF Global to Bernie Madoff and Sarbanes-Oxley.

After the break, we highlight a number of this past week’s interviews’ Defining Moments, including segments of Erin’s interviews with Janet Tavakoli, Yanis Varoufakis, Marin Katusa, John Brynjolfsson, Steve Hochberg and Ken Silverstein.

And in The Big Deal, Erin and Edward Harrison go over the latest tech headlines covering Apple, Dropbox, Twitter and Snapchat. Take a look!
