Narendra Modi is one of the most popular politicians on the planet. India’s prime minister is eyeing a third term atop the world’s biggest democracy. A tea-seller’s son, Mr Modi began life an outsider and the man behind the political phenomenon remains hard to fathom. India has become an economic powerhouse during his ten years in charge. But he’s also the frontman for a chauvinistic Hindu nationalist dogma. Can Mr Modi continue to balance both parts of his agenda and finish the job of turning India into a superpower? The Economist’s Avantika Chilkoti finds out what makes him tick. Launching June 2024.To listen to the full series, subscribe to Economist Podcasts+.If you’re already a subscriber to The Economist, you have full access to all our shows as part of your subscription.

More than 1bn people around the world are obese. That means there should be extraordinary demand for drugs to cure or mitigate the condition. Novo Nordisk is now Europe’s most valuable company and Eli Lilly’s market value has more than doubled. Both make the “miracle” drugs that can help people shed up to a fifth of their body weight. But these drugs promise to do more than boost drug companies’ profits. How will they reshape the economy?Hosts: Alice Fulwood, Mike Bird and Tom Lee-Devlin.

Amazon started with a plan to disrupt bookselling. It sold cheap books online, delivering them straight to customers’ homes. Three decades later it employs a million people in America and owns one hundred warehouses, each stocked with millions of products. More than a third of the US e-commerce market flows through it. Now, another company has spied an opportunity to disrupt Amazon: Temu. The Chinese e-commerce giant wants to undercut its US rival, delivering impossibly cheap stuff to Americans straight from factories in China. How worried should Amazon be?Hosts: Alice Fulwood, Mike Bird, Tom Lee-Devlin. Guests: Wendy Woloson of Rutgers University-Camden; Mark Shmulik of Bernstein; Michael Morton, an e-commerce analyst at MoffettNathanson; and Josh Silverman, CEO of Etsy.Listen to what matters most, from global politics and business to science and technology—Subscribe to Economist Podcasts+For more information about how to access Economist Podcasts+, please visit our FAQs page or watch our video explaining how to link your account.

So, does financial warfare work?Hosts: Mike Bird, Alice Fulwood and Tom Lee-Devlin. Guests: The Economist’s Cerian Richmond Jones; Juan Zarate, the architect of America’s sanctions after the September 11th attacks; and Nicholas Mulder, author of “The Economic Weapon”, which examines the rise of sanctions as a tool of war.Get a world of insights for 50% off—subscribe to Economist Podcasts+If you’re already a subscriber to The Economist, you’ll have full access to all our shows as part of your subscription.

Last week, we spoke to the author Michael Lewis, who was embedded with Sam Bankman-Fried, as FTX, the crypto-trading empire he built, came crashing down amid allegations of fraud, which Mr Bankman-Fried denies. Mr Lewis credits Changpeng Zhao - the boss of Binance, a rival exchange - with bringing Mr Bankman-Fried to prominence. But CZ, as he’s known, may also have played a role in his downfall.

Bukmeker kontorunda mərclər tez hesablanırmı? Yaxşı böyük bukmeker kontorlarında hesablama bir neçə saniyə və ya bir neçə dəqiqə çəkir. Əgər mərc etdiyiniz bukmeker kontorunda mərcinizin hesablanması çox uzun çəkirsə, onda siz belə bukmeker kontorundan imtina etməli və orada oynamağa davam etməməlisiniz və bunun qarşısını almaq üçün sizə burada oynamağı məsləhət görürəm https://azemostbet.com , burada heç bir problem yoxdur, hər şey tez və aydın olur.

This is certainly an informative podcast on the whole Huawei situation. Amidst trade talks with China that are either breaking down or not depending on whose perspective you get on it, one cannot help wonder if people are trying to create an enemy out of China just as they have been so fond of doing towards Russia for some time now.

This was interesting but the speaker repeatedly mistakes corroboration with causation. For example, he skates over patent filings in relation to emancipation, as thought the only issue at work is black politics.

Sorry but sometimes when guests whose native language isn’t English & esp if they speak painfully slow with that heavy accent one just loses the interest...

Hi, just a thought regarding the milk farming industry. I think there is another significant reason why the demands for cow milk is decreasing is these videos what under covered reporters released to the world where it clearly seen how they cows are treated, so disgusting, inhuman, cruel!!! After seeing these videos people think about why the hell should I support this industry by buying there products??? The older generation like these senators stand next to this industry but this is not the future! Young generation prefers to drink alternative milks and even if the government saves this industry that is just temporary.

the economist was once a place of solid objective news. It has now become agenda driven PC propaganda. So sad to be dropping this once great publication.

The economist's podcasts never work on my Android. If I try downloading them - get "Download failed" error. Playing directly does not work either.

The host needs to speak slowly. She's great in fluency but extremely fast. I have had to replay the audio several times to understand what was stated. especially when these were facts
