More or Less

More More or Less this week: Radio 4 this Friday at 1.30pm BST and Sunday at 8pm BST. You can also listen online, subscribe to a podcast, and read more at the More or Less website here.

This program: the Royal Statistical Society queries the government’s statistics on swine flu; we enlist a dynamic programming expert to try to win the Ashes for England (sorry, non-English readers), we ask whether A-Level standards are rising, falling – or whether the question even makes sense. And we interview Terri Duhon, one of the whiz-kids behind credit default swaps.
