The Irish fiscal crisis; the power struggle in Moscow; and the succession path in North Korea

In this week’s podcast: How can Ireland escape its fiscal crisis? The mayor of Moscow is ousted in a show of strength by the Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev – but is the power struggle over? And in North Korea a succession plan is emerging as Kim Jong-Il’s third son is promoted to general – but what role will his aunt play?

Gideon Rachman hosts the world podcast, with guests David Gardner in the studio, Catherine Belton in Moscow and Christian Oliver in Seoul.
