In today's programme, the battle over Ecuador's economy. The country begins 2019 with higher fuel prices, and cuts in public spending, jobs and some public sector salaries. Are these really what the country needs? The government of Lenin Moreno insists strong austerity measures are the only way to survive but some differ. Could the country be heading towards an economic collapse? To talk about this, we're pleased to have with us Pedro Paez, an economic anaylyst and former Economy Minister.
