Share Radio's Alexi Phillips reports on what was behind the rise and fall of this optimism surrounding Africa. He spoke with Richard Dowden, director of the Royal African Society, and Simon Freemantle, Senior Political Economist at Standard Bank

CONSUMING ISSUES: Why is your credit rating important? Listen to Lisa Hardstaff and Joel Davis from EQUIFAX
Are you looking to get a mortgage, a loan, even a new mobile contract? How much does a credit report matter? And what are the things that could impact it? Your credit rating can affect your ability to borrow money using products such as credit cards, loans and mortgages. If your credit rating isn’t in the best shape there are things you can do to build it up again and fix any problems. Popular myths include that the credit behaviour of anyone living at the same address could affect your credit score rating and that old debts don't count. Georgie Speaks to Lisa Hardstaff and Joel Davis from EQUIFAX

Morning Money: How are non-graduates faring in Britain today?
Conor D'Arcy, Policy Analyst at the Resolution Foundation, talked about their new research published on the lack of career routes for non-graduates. Public policy is often focused on boosting high-level skills and helping those with the poorest qualifications. But those in between are often overlooked, so how can we break down the barriers?

Morning Money: British companies divided over the effects of a Brexit, according to East & Partners
According to research by business banking market research and analysis firm, East & Partners, four-fifths of Britain's major companies have taken steps to hedge against the risk that a vote to leave the European Union will knock more than 10% off the value of sterling. In contrast, 83% of small and medium-sized firms think sterling will be unharmed by a vote for Brexit. Simon Kleine is the Head of Client Services at East & Partners, and he discussed the findings.

The Weeks Update: Updates on the democrat vote in the US election with Jeff Faux and Prof John Weeks
We begin with a clip of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders speaking after his victory in Indiana over rival Hillary Clinton, as they slug it out for the Democratic nomination in the US presidential elections. Although Mrs Clinton as good as has the top prize in her pocket, Mr Sanders has refused to make life easy for her. Despite trailing by an average of seven points in opinion polls and losing bigger states on the east coast, his latest victory shows that he still appeals to disaffected mid-west voters. So...does Bernie Sanders have any further rabbits to pull from a hat...or could Hilary Clinton yet outfox him by inviting him onto her ticket as her running mate? In the studio is Jeff Faux, author of The Servant Economy and founder of the "Economic Policy Institute in Washington", and Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
