What will Iran’s deal with Boeing mean for the aerospace industry?
Iran's state airline says it's signed a $16.6 billion deal with US aircraft maker Boeing. Iran Air will buy 80 passenger planes as part of a 10-year deal, in the biggest business agreement between the US and Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. So is this the first big sign of a thawing relationship, or will matters be complicated by President-Elect Trump's indication of anti-Iranian policies? Matt Cox spoke to Howard Wheeldon, Founder of Wheeldon Strategic Advisory, to find out more.

Seijiro Takeshita, Professor of Management and Information at the University of Shizuoka, joined Share Radio Breakfast to give a take from Japan.

Could Donald Trump help the Fed achieve its inflation goals?
While Donald Trump won't assume power for another 65 days, markets are already betting that a Trump presidency means higher inflation and interest rates. The Federal Reserve has been trying to get inflation up towards its 2% target for years and now the president-elect could help them achieve this goal. Share Radio’s Robert Van Egghen has been speaking to Brett Ryan, Senior US Economist at Deutsche Bank, about the forecast for the Trump administration.

How did the US elections affect investor behaviour?
How can investors keep up with the extraordinary pace of change in the past six days? Since US voters went to the polls on Tuesday, some investors have sold up and piled into safe havens like gold, only to see the financial markets do an unexpected about-face. With impeccable timing, the Open University Business School is staging its annual conference with the theme of "investor behaviour", and its Research Professor, Janette Rutterford, spoke to Share Radio's Nigel Cassidy about recent investor behaviour, and what it tells us about our understanding of finance.

A new period of fiscal stimulus for the US, but can Trump’s policy pledges be achieved?
As Donald Trump prepares to assemble his economic team, markets are rallying in expectation of a new period of fiscal stimulus. However, with Republicans in Congress set on strict deficit reduction targets, Mr Trump may be unlikely to achieve his policy pledges, including $1trn worth of spending on infrastructure. Robert Van Egghen has been speaking to Jim O'Sullivan, Chief US Economist at High Frequency Economics, who explained why the Republican party could stop Mr Trump from fulfilling his spending promises.
