Morning Money: Will the new transatlantic "Privacy Shield" be effective at defending your data?
Discussions surrounding 'Privacy Shield' are ongoing - it's a new transatlantic agreement that will allow data to flow freely between the EU and US, whilst also ensuring that data is properly protected. Companies have waited months for the deal, after its predecessor, the US Safe Harbor Agreement, was struck down by European courts in October 2015. But so far only Microsoft, CA Technologies and Workday have signed up. Joe Aldridge looks into the new agreement by speaking with Peter Church, a Counsel and data privacy expert at law firm Linklaters.

This is Money: From Brexaustion to Brexcuses.
Time again for This is Money, Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost and Financial Website of the Year This is Money team up with NS&I to close off a turbulent week, with the best of financial advice and analysis. Yes, it has been a turbulent week, with Natwest veering towards negative rates, Santander rolling back the UK's most popular current account, and Lloyds scrapping more of their workforce. Can savers find their way through it all? Well, we'd better hope so, as the issue this week most pressing is the FCA's findings that over 5 million credit cards may never be paid off, and around 1.4 million people are barely making any repayments at all. In short, we're drowning in plastic. But the first step is educating ourselves, and this podcast is the place to start! This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I.

The Weeks Update

The Weeks Update: How will the UK negotiate it's future trade relationships & other post-Brexit deals?
The new PM Theresa May stressed that Article 50, which gives EU member states a two year window to leave the bloc, would not be invoked this year. However choosing when to activate Article 50 is only part of the story. Could the UK negotiate the terms of a BREXIT and the shape of a future trade relationship, at the same time? What about the business community? Could British and foreign companies exit these shores if the uncertainty drags on? Jan Toporowski is Professor of Finance & Economics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, at the University of London. He joined Juliette in the studio along with Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
