October 19th, 2016

Episode 857 of 1091 episodes

The Democratic vice-presidential nominee discusses the economic issues in the election. He was talking to Kai Ryssdal from our US partner programme, Marketplace. And we get reaction to Mr Kaine's thoughts from Diana Furchtgott-Roth, who is an economic advisor to Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump. Also in the programme, the latest figures show steady economic growth for China. But could huge debts yet derail the world's second biggest economy? We ask Jinny Yan, chief China economist at ICBC Standard Bank. As more and more people choose to hop between jobs, the BBC's Elizabeth Hotson asks if constantly switching is good or bad for your career. Plus we hear from Silicon Valley entrepreneur Christian Smith about a gadget he's invented to help track down things you might have lost.
