The price of plastic: Europe is restricting credit and debit card transaction costs. But who's going to benefit most - shops, or consumers? We have reaction from retailers, and the card payments industry. Also in the programme, tech shares in the US are approaching levels last seen in the dotcom boom, at the end of the last century. The BBC's Samira Hussein in New York finds out if a new bubble is inflating. And as a new luxury liner is launched by Queen Elizabeth, we ask its owner, Carnival Cruise Ships, if a 141,000 ton cruise ship can ever really be green. Plus, news of a new financial battle of the sexes, after Harry Potter star Emma Watson shared news of an awkward dinner date. Who should pay for a meal? Etiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith fills us in.
