US Election Vote Under Way

November 8th, 2016

Episode 874 of 1091 episodes

We hear how Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's policies could affect the US economy with Kenneth Rogoff, a Harvard professor and former IMF chief economist. Plus we hear from Julie Rice, of Bradford Concrete Design in Arkansas, who explains why she favours Donald Trump's economic plan. We gauge the possible reaction to a potential Trump victory from Mexico, with Enrique de la Madrid Cordero, the country's tourism minister. And the BBC's Rob Young is in China on the streets of Beijing to find out how the US election is playing out there. Also in the programme, India's prime minister has announced that from midnight tonight, high denomination bank notes will no longer be legal tender in a clampdown on tax evasion. The BBC's Yogita Limaye describes the widespread confusion that the move has caused.
