(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … France is heading to the European Court of Justice today to establish whether tech giants like Google can be forced to delete data on individuals if they make a formal request for the right to be forgotten online. Then, Tuesday, Venezuela will begin selling gold certificates to help protect people’s savings from sky-high inflation as the country continues to battle an economic crisis. But who really benefits from actions like this? Afterwards, this week we’ll be talking about how the global economy has changed in the wake of the global financial crisis, but first, a review about why we’re still talking about Lehman Brothers’ collapse 10 years later. Today's show was sponsored by Indeed (indeed.com/marketplace) and Navy Federal Credit Union (navyfederal,org/flagship). (09/11/2018)
