(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … Ten years after the global financial crisis, is China still too exposed to personal debt and risky lending? A new report from the International Monetary Fund has a warning. Then, we hear from Melinda Gates — whose foundation invests in global health — about the role contraceptives play in helping low-income countries transition to high-income ones. Afterwards, we take a ride in one of London’s newest cabs…the iconic black vehicle has gotten a green makeover.
