This is Money: Playing the Trump Card
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. It’s been a politically turbulent year, and this week the pollsters were proved wrong again as Donald Trump defied all odds to become 45th President of the United States. The billionaire real estate developer and TV personality with no political experience beat establishment favourite Hillary Clinton in one of the bitterest campaigns in history. With the markets swerving in all directions the eyes of the world are now on the United States waiting to see what a Trump presidency will bring. What will it mean for post-Brexit Britain? Despite Barrack Obama’s previous description of the UK being “at the back of the queue” Mr. Trump certainly appears more open to trade deals. Editor Simon Lambert and reporter Sarah Davidson join Georgie Frost to look at what could come of the shock victory and how it happened. Could being “a master of mess” be the key? That’s the theory being put forward by one economist. Also on this week’s show we look at the fallout from the Tesco Bank hack, the latest victims to rising food prices and how a wood burning stove could provide a cheaper way of keeping your home cosy this Christmas. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Share Radio Breakfast: EU equivalence regulation – How could it affect banks in the UK?
The EU is reconsidering how it grants market access to overseas financial firms. It's being seen as a blow to the City of London and may potentially scupper any potential backup plans to maintain a European relationship after Brexit. No decision has been taken, but any tightening of current regulations would be a clear signal to Britain that Brussels is willing to play hardball in negotiations once the country leaves the bloc. To find out more about the potential effects on banks in the UK, Matt Cox has been speaking to Chris Justham, Relationship Manager at Seven Investment Management.

Jemima Olchawski, Head of Policy at The Fawcett Society, discusses the gender pay gap
Today is Equal Pay Day. But why is it important. Well, the 10th November marks the time women are effectively working for free because of earning less on average than men. Equal Pay Day is calculated using the mean full time pay gap, which is currently 13.9%. At the current rate of progress, it will take over 60 years to close the gender pay gap. So from today, all women in full time work are effectively working for free. For more information, Georgie spoke to Jemima Olchawski, Head of Policy at The Fawcett Society.
