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.

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.

The Weeks Update: Have George Osborne's Treasury backed findings made the road ahead clearer?  John Weeks gives his take
For those who've yet to decide which way they're going to vote in the EU referendum, the claims and counter claims from the rival camps are probably about as helpful as driving through fog without lights or a Sat Nav. So have George Osborne's Treasury backed findings made the road ahead any clearer....or worse? Juliette Foster is joined in the studio by Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.

The Weeks Update: Dr Carlos Oya of the UOL & Professor John Weeks, talk Spain and the fallout after it's general election
Its been almost four months since Spain's general election resulted in the radical left wing "Podemos" party holding the balance of power in the country's traditional two party system. Europe's governing elites could only look on as Spaniards - tired of corruption scandals, relentless austerity and high unemployment - defied convention to embrace a party that had only been around for less than two years. However election euphoria soon gave way to political stalemate and this week Podemos members are expected to vote on whether the party should support or oppose a deal to form a coalition government. Failure to cut an agreement could see Spain heading back to the polls in June. Joining Juliette Foster of Investment Perspectives in the studio is Doctor Carlos Oya of the University of London, and Professor John Weeks Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
