Four philosophers share their views with BBC Radio 4's Analysis programme.

Peter Singer: Our future selves will consider meat eating to be barbaric

Peter Singer is professor of bioethics at Princeton University and the author of Animal Liberation.
"You could say that if you kill a cow you're depriving it of the rest of its existence, which could also have been a happy, good existence, so why deprive it of that just because you want to eat some meat when you've got other healthy, nutritious, delicious things that you could also eat?

At least the US Federal Reserve has (unintentionally) helped us out by keeping their rates low, thus facilitating a "carry trade" into India that lifts us up through foreign capital inflows.

The road to reform runs through Bihar, and the Congress/Lefty highwaymen thugs are out to raid us and stop us at all costs. We will have to fight our way past them every step of the way.
