​World War gold, Starving Brits & GCHQ ‘begged’ NSA for more spying [E84]

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the enduring power of the petrodollar, which - like its predecessor, the gold standard - is helping foster war all around the world. Tory MP Kwasi Kwarteng says that gold has been responsible for a lot of wars – but the real crisis is in the government printing too much paper money. Save the Children says 5 million youngsters will be starving by 2020 – we look at who’s helping feed Britain’s hungry. Plus, did GCHQ chiefs ask the NSA for access to more surveillance? Vince Cable’s in hot water again – this time about where the money for his jobs fund has gone. And, what have we really learnt from the Cool Britannia era – and was it enough to stop us repeating our mistakes?
