(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service…the U.S. Federal Reserve voted to raise interest rates on Wednesday, but two more important central bank decisions are happening Thursday. We’ll explain why inflation is top of mind for two key European banks. Then, before net neutrality became a divisive issue in America, it was the subject of much debate in India.
