What can we expect from the OPEC meeting in Vienna?
There is high drama in Vienna, where oil ministers from OPEC are meeting. A deal to curtail oil production and prop up the price of crude has suffered a setback, with Iran and Iraq resisting pressure from Saudi Arabia to participate fully in any action. Iran’s oil minister has declared that his country will not cut oil production. To look ahead to the meeting, Kevin Baxter, Global Commodities Spot News Editor at the Wall Street Journal, joined Share Radio Breakfast.

How does the global outlook for oil affect the industry in the UK?

But how does the global outlook affect the oil industry in the UK? A new survey finds that the market might have bottomed out, and there could even be signs of recovery.

Is Abe's rush to ratify the TPP pointless given the pact's slim chances of obtaining US ratification?
The ruling coalition party of Japan has extended the end of the current extraordinary Diet session by two weeks, giving itself a window to enact bills on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement and pension reform. But is Abe's rush to ratify the TPP pointless given the 12-party trade pact's slim chances of obtaining US ratification? To discuss this and more, Seijiro Takeshita, Professor of Management and Information at the University of Shizuoka, joined Share Radio Breakfast from Japan.

How would a No Vote in the Italian referendum affect Italy’s economy?
On Sunday, Italian voters will go to the polls in a referendum on whether to curb the powers of the senate. The polls suggest Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who has promised to resign in the case of a No Vote, is on course to lose. As Italy's fragile banking sector struggles to stay afloat, a change of government, which could see the populist anti-EU Five Star Movement elected, will have severe repercussions for the Italian economy and the Eurozone. Robert Van Egghen reports.

This is Money: Spreading the Jam
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. This week of course the top financial story was Philip Hammond’s first, and indeed last, Autumn Statement. Just what state are the country’s post-Brexit finances in, and crucially what would the Chancellor offer to help his much referenced ‘Jams’? In the end those ‘just about managing’ certainly received a few headline policies but with predictions pointing towards low growth, high borrowing and high inflation many argue Jam spending has been spread too thin. There were also some losers with those enjoying salary sacrifice perks and letting agents coming into the crosshairs, as well as in fact the Autumn Statement itself which will now be scrapped. So what will all this mean for the pound in your pocket? Georgie Frost joins editor Simon Lambert and reporter Becky Rutt to answer just that. Also on the agenda this week they discuss Black Friday and for a slightly different purchase the opportunity to buy a road legal Formula 1 car. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.
