becoming the first country to issue an exam bond outside of the muslim world the u.k. hopes to offer a two hundred million pound islam friendly bond known as a cook as early as next it it will conform to law which bans interest and now the prime minister is also planning to launch a new index. explains exactly why mr cameron is so we go to this part of the world the british muslims contribute at least thirty billion pounds to the economy here while u.k. banks offer more islamic services than in any other western country in fact islamic funding has propped up some of the capital's largest developments including the shot on the olympic village but critics say the welcoming approach doesn't go beyond investment british politicians have in the past rejected proposals to recognise shari'a lower in certain areas with large muslim populations while the recent debate in parliament centered on whether or not to penalize local shari'a
courts which help british muslims result family issues and when a small group of locals try to impose sharia law in london's east end the response was that of horror but when it comes to the potential goldmine that is muslim money the city of london's lord mayor recently said that islamic finance should be as british suspicion chips and the f.a. cup final reporting from the city of london i'm poly boy thank you that we're going to stay in london for now and join a. capital of find out what the finance wells makes of these islamic bombs is it a good idea or will it bring more investment into the city. as it gets. longer produce very it's remember a pipeline for a book or given the fact that we have. turmoil in the euro for russian look at the u.k. we could see the portrait tomorrow for you current policy makers are. bringing this
back. into the front i think it's very encouraging for we do see more investment into the u.k. given the fact that u.k. is now contemplating its membership in two thousand and seventeen it's going to have to look for other avenues in order to induce investment and why not attract a one point two trillion dollar market what about potential problems that could there be any with their introduction. of finance is a is a whole new beast when it comes to your traditional forms of western banking and there is a slight concern that it may take over the financing system could kind of lies that given the fact that there is an issue with interest when it comes to some finance issue interest is strictly prohibited there all thoughts and activities people sag all we don't want these islamic bonds we don't want to find take this if it comes to things like a football club so how it's whatever it might be what would your response to that
city that. well i think that. is the place currently i think a lot of people need to do the diligence on islamic finance what it actually means it's not something may sound a little scary given the fact that it's quite new and and i've heard of the western world but really it's going to induce far more impressed when the u.k. we really seen that with the likes of the shah building and in london bridge we also had with the like you said it's and also at the same time the olympic athletes village and during the two thousand and twelve olympics it's going to create more jobs in the u.k. which is very key when it comes to monetary policy and economic health of the u.k. going forward we know that the bank of england have a target in place for unemployment more jobs there's a better for the u.k. economy i k d t that from have to thank you after your take on the map thank you that's on the financial world give me acid in. side of the. this week the very
first big coin a.t.m. let live in a cafe in vancouver canada so now people can actually exchange the digital currency the cash while enjoying a cup of coffee so just to recap them but going is a stored in an anonymous online web wallet this is tim is totally separate from any bank or government users can buy products and services online or in a handful of stores if they want a and can exchange it into other cars as well so you say the u.s. dollar for example so all we know entering a new virtual currency well i'm now joined by adults would have wilson here from the scope of all business school to help me understand this so does this mean that the big coin is finally becoming more mainstream with the coin is far from becoming mainstream factors that most merchants in the west will not accept that are even familiar with it that said the currency was first issued. as recently as two thousand and nine so it's only four years old but in the four year period i think
it's been very successful because the market value of the coin against all of the currencies the u.s. dollar the euro the japanese yen has risen enormously so the market during the market the ultimate judge of value over the past four years or so. i like it going if we talk about the market has had a role the valar full of and so house and that's to do with accusations of money laundering drug smuggling it could be doing better than that quietly about sad to say with any asset if there's not much liquidity to terms that be a lot of volatility in prices right now there are only eleven million coins in circulation sort of speed yeah so as the big coin becomes more widely used by merchants you'll see the price volatility begin to drop over time and can we delve into how you get hold of a big coin because as. i understand it like this a.t.m.
in fact you still have to already have an account don't you have that quite accounts so how do you get them in the first place and i know it's very complex to become plex if you want to coin you need to purchase a digital wallet online and then you go to a coin network and from there you actually would purchase the coins. with foreign currency. so you don't have to be tech savvy then do. you deal but i think to understand the concept of the coin you know i'm not an economist it took me a while to really comprehend what a bit coin was and i think that most users have to be pretty pretty yeah i couldn't picture my parents using and i thought so i'm thinking of my mom let's go forward and think about the. current says cause you got the big one at the moment. for the big client but what about other currencies do you think that this is the future. you know i think in my opinion that there's
a great financial crisis we've had the past five years has brought about the of the coin the fact is you look at the u.s. dollar the world's great reserve currency the us that now is one hundred percent of g.d.p. two weeks ago we came within twelve hours of defaulting on our debt we knew all the problems that the eurozone is having made the other major reserve currency of course is the japanese yen their debt is over two hundred percent of g.d.p. so the market is saying at some point these governments will. print money to pay for their debts which will cause a depreciation of these currencies and the markets worried about that and so i think as a consequence what you'll see is a lot more of these digital coins coming into the market over the next few years thank you that. on the skolkovo business giving us his take on the decline it seems everyone's got an opinion on the coin whether it be good old. and i spoke to. a
hayes from the first national innovation broca's and he is the illegal practices undertaken using to dish no prizes as well. the number one currency for money laundering is be united states dollar but nobody is blaming the dollar and nobody is thinking about banishing here so it's a matter of what people choose to do and where there is a powerful tool such as digital money such as big point or scapegoating. they can be abused just like anything else so. in argument it's a double standard against it to currencies by times of corporate news now than in the wild leading brand consultancy into bronchitis says that they don't own trademark it's also strongest brands with an estimated value of thirty nine p. didn't dive as the gas giant accounts of almost call for the find a faulty plan in
a study. on russia's state news kinetic energy corp also tom has won a contest to build a no play the finest that power plant in georgia and the time bidding on every ounce of project is one of the wild things that is all stuff you can see not in twenty eight and. stay with us in business center now we're going to do it all mr schoen thomas he plays the russian stock market with company cash my favorite part of the show so a get up to muss guy what have you been up to how trading in did well the trip was great to the trading that not so much things this week whether it's a technological glitch or something it's just not going the way it should go lewis yeah that's what we were in overall they've been going gangbusters however this week they're down four and a half percent which means i took a thrashing i was taken to the cleaners and i lost four hundred fifty four dollars which brings my grand total down to nine thousand dollars for her. seventy six oh
that's just not good or bad even if you doctoring and so on that rate is not good at so i know still smiling though i love that you've also maybe a smile of a glow you know you know it's one of those things you've got you've got to keep a positive attitude about the whole thing actually i have an idea since i'm not doing too well on my own and this is a sort of a game that we're playing why don't we do the whole phone a friend or the ask the audience thing i know that we post the show on you tube and also on to our to dot com if anyone out there who's watching has any ideas on russian stocks send them to us in the comments i'll be happy to take a look maybe that can help me get on track for next week but i'm looking you know i know that we're talking about gazprom earlier in the show and how it's kind of this big russian brand i think i'm going to go in trying to get on that brand recognition and do gazprom but for this week to see if i can recoup some of my lost ok that sounds good to me so on and you know you say you're an amateur no one of that but you'll up all three months in now as we look at some results we waited to
and i think that you've been partying and jet setting a lot so a little bit more you write it and by. then see that it's wait take care. the world bank has revealed its annual doing business or polls i'm not sure how devolved twenty places but there's no need for a party just yet because ninety seconds place is still a long way to die but at least it's in the top one hundred ahead of time as well which came in at ninety six but i also was also named one of the top three countries in terms of having improved its business climate and the last jet. told the top spot for the best place to run a business for the eight in a row. all right that is one chapter done and dusted for this we see next week thanks for joining me to find.
exactly what happened that day i don't know but i killed. piers later is when i got arrested for. for a crime i did not do. we have numerous cases where police officers lying about polygraph results. innocent people to confess to police officers don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is like meant no because the psychological techniques are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse and they were often they could get what they wanted they could say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. the.
press and media freedom worth nothing. when it comes to the interests of multinationals we have a media that is corrupted by power mostly by corporate power who have corporate ownership from the top of corporate advertising coming in from the side we have a media that is where advertising and money and corporate influence is really the mother's milk a documentary filmmaker is being sued. for the truth is being told a private investigator sells something to someone taking e-mail reading it happens people buy and sell those kind of services all of the world when you've got hundreds of million dollar industry that needs to protect his reputation a few million being spent on it on a campaign to do just that is for me goods good money wells well spent. so what will be the verdict. big boy is going bananas on o.t. .
the music industry when this threatening its last major source of revenue coming up . milli vanilli front man says the lip sinking jail is rife the technology that transforms terrible singers and the industry secret no one dares to mention. in the best new artist. milli vanilli i use you can destroy its biggest scandal to
place this month in one thousand nine hundred ninety million to nearly was stripped of a grammy for best new artist. their worldwide number one goal you know it's true wasn't true it wasn't real. voices in the studio or on stage the truth came out one concert when the pre recalled john and repeating the chorus again and again. i wanted to. stop good mood no good eighty thousand people good. i couldn't repeat fifteen times company says it was in whole row at the news that the industry knew it all along and most entertainment weekly it was perfectly happy with the deception until the public found dealt is real hora was the industry secret had been leaked with anything it today reports time magazine almost probably
notes hearing the actual voice offering to pose for photos through voice of britney spears quote here it's released a microphone deal with the pre recorded backing track. dude. her. voice sounds different on the official album. this is what leading record producer told time let's just say i've had auto tuned say vocals on everything from britney spears to bollywood cast albums and to every singer now you just run their voice through the box. as the industry cools altered
tune destroys the voice is natural vibration but puts it in tune with the music it's invented and hildebrand found the same sound wave vibrations that's. correct the voice. of the technologies being used yes or sixpences. we invited amateur thing as that into a studio and also turned his voice to the music recording. own you. can make. ah.
dubious ripples even those seen those great singers like celine dion today rely on will to be that it's about music magazine electronics crystals heroes and the name push kristie is great to see you how do you feel about no longer hearing voices a lot of the stuff i work with and listen to is music i think facing really a little bit trite music os is just relying on old to join in the voice isn't just me if i'm having a new artist and i hear no such it is about the imperfections even wrote groups which traditionally prized rule vocals top producer tone bushell says they now rely on auto tune using it has even become a badge of. listen more hostile to printing on their own also tune was used on
this record this tool to music journalist joe vogel joe good to speak to will to affect also to having when it gets so universal it takes away from the the soul of the music actually being the heroes imperfections in people's vocals you know singers like bob dylan who were praised because their voices weren't great you know i mean he didn't have that traditionally. you know beautiful melodic voice but that's kind of why people like bob dylan. the results this thing is today come sing live no soul diva justin because auto tune means they no longer train their voice when. and the national anthem at the presidential inauguration the mainstream reacted with shock although even the singer who still said everyone's doing it chris first ones doing it work people
shocked and surprised is the secret that nobody did this when the also faces stripped away and people see how the reality of how things are put together the general public are surprised and shocked it isn't the emperor's new clothes. the emperor is new going to do. it to perfection. separately from the. emperor began to blush not just listening in all its voice holds as they full off stage. will draw the microphone with no change in so.
so obvious is painful is how c.b.s. reports with those lips thinking. i once saw madonna drop her microphone without it affecting her vocal performance which then she and her band left the stage all together for an entire track without any change in sound or style elton john is considered one of the few big today who still sings law if. he was surprised madonna got the cure awards based life act prize madonna best can live like. i thank you. since when is lip sync. good to see them should be shot.
according to madonna's publicist quote madonna does not lip sync but even the industry thinks is going to fall for the x. factor a show for judging people singing ability of miss contestants are actually all to it too and when the news went public shamed executives said they would stop the practice legal disclaimers have even been planned on brittany comes to kids warning the show is mind off the funds it's a recent performance found she wasn't singing fans deserted the pop diva last night just three songs into her first concert in perth and the reason fans say she's lip sinking instead of singing so taylor is one of the industry's most respected journalist it's great to speak to britney seems to be a target because she's taken with to the end game for pulls the only thing lloyd in her latest offering live in miami is the reaction of the audience during a warning label on britney lip sinking is kind of like saying by the way warning in
winter it's cold we'd like to believe that those who become singers have a natural talent that's what it used to be elton john has a point i don't know that i'd pull out a gun on a singer for lip sinking but i have to agree if you are paying for the experience of seeing not only a show with entertainment but someone who sings for a living you'd like to think that they're going to saying for real i do believe that when you're on stage you need to give it your best shot it's a demanding gig so my warning britney is don't take on such a demanding role if you really can't deliver it night after night and please the fans that are there paying
a small fortune and i don't we see you live but fly to vegas and stay in a hotel. and pay for meals and cabs it's expensive so you've got to do more than just dance around with a snake around your neck according to britney spears publicist britney does not lip sync. let's get a view from inside the industry for more formally of milli vanilli really good to speak to how common is also to among also. is the standard in the music industry today whether you're a top singer or whether you it. low res singer the fans of britney spears and do it first since hit me baby one more time and then when they grow up and then certainly more aware of the world of entertainment and they realize that since they've been going to the shows she's never saying live do you understand
what people say they're getting tired of it another thing is that when people we call vocals nowadays they seem to verse and then a chorus is because it just once the chorus is flown in english part of the wreckage in a daze you know people saying every chorus so that you don't have this flow of things anymore is a sterile ok five just a few lines of a real voice ok. well you know people will disown any time so i'll do that one ok oh how mean it sounds saliu how many ways can a show. be that can be good evil or who wants. all you've built a while oh really a i'm gonna tear it down take. a. concerted nothing's gonna get in the way we the way.
of turning the mill even really cause the current trends. on their head he's part of a new wave of musicians that always sings live and uses the real voice on studio tracks . to comb his nose loys performances of the last big in an industry in crisis that has been crippled by free downloads of music from the internet but this top music critic issued a stoke warning if they keep tricking the public singing life is a high wire act the possibility something might go wrong not only gives the performance and age but drives artists to go to greater heights singers talk about transcendent moments that occur life when the holy spirit comes down and they hit notes they didn't even know they had in the last the forty and says start to believe that not even live his life anymore gig attendance could find itself plunging down the same black hole as the rest of the music business the emperor
do you think your argument about turkey banged up prodigious examples of muslim democracy that was able to separate the its religion from its economy still can be applied to these day that's a fair point what i spoke about in the book was how ways gokey head down from being accompanied by asking you to go away with hyperinflation and video. so it seems so much economic success and i think that was great but the problem there is of course they do one day and his attitude has changed he now has become much more the target did he and. any criticism and more bad annoyed.
