July 29th, 2016

Episode 788 of 860 episodes

Hillary Clinton pledges to create millions of jobs, invest heavily in US infrastructure and go after Wall Street if elected president. The Democratic Party's nominee also promised a vastly different immigration policy to that of Republican rival Donald Trump. We ask what a Clinton economy might look like. The UK government unexpectedly puts the brakes on one of the world's most expensive infrastructure projects - a new nuclear plant at Hinkley Point in the south-west of England. Do the changing economics of nuclear mean the project is in jeopardy? Plus, banks across Europe have been getting a health check - we find out why there are growing concerns about some Italian institutions in particular.
