July 22nd, 2016

Episode 782 of 860 episodes

Trade deals, tax, and immigration. The three things at the forefront of Donald Trump’s speech as he accepted his nomination as the 2016 Republican Presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Marie Keyworth and the World Business Report team have been combing through Trump's words to paint a picture of what the U.S. economy under a President Trump could look like. And, almost two and half years after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared, authorities have announced they will suspend the search if the plane is not found soon. We hear from Zaharie Shah, the sister of the pilot of MH370, who says being a pilot was her brother’s ‘childhood dream’. Also, in some parts of the world, many children are out of school on summer holidays, but their parents still have to work. Marie Keyworth investigates how parents are coping with the cost of keeping their kids occupied during the summer months.
