A mega-merger is on the cards; the new company would produce a third of the world's beer. The new UK opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has appeared at his first Prime Minister's Questions since taking on the role. But what would his economic policies mean for the country? We bring together two regular World Business Report contributors to discuss: Roger Bootle of Capital Economics, and Andrew Simms from the left-of-centre New Economics Foundation. Plus, a new report claims that almost half of fish and other marine life has disappeared from our oceans in the last 50 years. So should we stop buying fish? Louise Heaps, chief marine policy advisor at WWF UK gives us her view. And as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg promises a new 'dislike' button for his more than a billion global users, we ask how popular it will be, and Mike Butcher from TechCrunch tells us why it's taken such a long time to come about.
