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.

The number of people visiting our high streets and shopping centres has fallen for the second month in a row: BRC-Springboard Footfall and Vacancies Monitor
The number of people visiting our high streets and shopping centres has fallen for the second month in a row. Overall, retail footfall in October was 0.4% lower compared to the same time a year ago, but it was still better than September's fall of 0.9%. This is according to the latest BRC-Springboard Footfall and Vacancies Monitor, which found that customer traffic in shopping centres fell for the ninth consecutive month. Despite this, the 1.8% drop signalled an improvement on September's 2.5% drop. To discuss the findings in more detail, Simon Rose spoke to Diane Wehrle, Marketing and Insights Director at Springboard

Will President Trump gamble with banking regulations?

Will President Trump gamble with banking regulations?
Part of President Obama's legacy were rules to curb the excesses of investment banks on wall street - the Dodd-Frank Act, a United States federal law that places regulation of the financial industry in the hands of the government. Some would like to see the brakes off, though more commentators have voiced concerns after President-elect Donald Trump announced he hopes to enact reforms when he enters office in the New Year. They fear changes could herald the return of casino banks engaging in risky financial behaviour. Share Radio's Matt Cox spoke to Colin Cieszynski, Chief Analyst at CMS Markets and Philip Alexander, Editor at Risk.net.

Is London's economy diverging? - Hakan Enver on London Employment Monitor
October saw a minimal decrease in available jobs from the previous month, highlighting the City's resilient nature in the face of post-Brexit alarmist rhetoric. London's picture is often different to the rest of the country and might have different needs, like for instance retaining passporting to continue the number of overseas operations. Hakan Enver, Operations Director at Morgan McKinley Financial Services, joined Share Radio to discuss this and other issues around London employment.

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.
