Share Politics: Is Trump a threat to Europe?
The Prime Minister has been answering questions in the Commons ahead of the first vote on a bill to trigger the start of Brexit. A second day of MPs debating the legislation for Article 50 takes place before that vote later this evening. The Prime Minister also insisted she wasn't given prior warning about Donald Trump's ban on refugees entering the US. She's been quizzed by Jeremy Corbyn in the Commons, after days of not saying whether the President discussed it with her when they met last week. But the Labour leader says it's still a UK issue - as Mr Trump is going against an international agreement on refugees To discuss all this, and more, Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined by Ryan Heath, Senior EU Correspondent at POLITICO.

The Book Review: What actually is money?

The Book Review: What actually is money?
Nearly a decade ago the world's biggest banks were brought to their knees. And with each new victim of the financial crisis, it quickly became clear how ignorant regulators had been about the activities of those in the City. But, whilst we have pulled back from the brink, the financial system hasn't become any less mystifying. For those not in the monetary policy bubble, the idea that central bankers can conjure funds for quantitative easing seemingly out of thin air is purely mindboggling. So, money still makes the world go round - but what actually is it? Where does it come from - and who's in charge of creating it? I'm now joined by Ann Pettifor, director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics and author of 'The Production of Money: How to Break the Power of Bankers', which is published by Verso Books and retails for £12.99.

With rate hikes looming, are the glory days of income investing over?

The Weeks Update: Is Trump advocating isolationism?

The Weeks Update: Is Trump advocating isolationism?
With the stroke of a pen, just five days into his first week at the Oval Office, Donald Trump temporarily banned citizens of 7 Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. The President’s ‘extreme vetting’ has been met with outrage on both sides of the Atlantic, decried as ‘unacceptable’ in Germany and ‘divisive’ in the UK. In response, Mr. Trump has insisted the ban is about ‘Making America Safe Again’ - not religion. International condemnation aside, the travel ban has given another glimpse of what lies ahead for the Middle East in the Trump era. An inaugural pledge to put America First, to ensure “every decision … on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit ... American families", has been read by many as Trump turning his back on the region. But with gains from the Arab Spring unconsolidated, nuclear ambitions only temporarily tempered, and Syria obliterated by civil war, there are fears an American retreat may be unwise. What will a Donald Trump Presidency mean for the Middle East? How will a more hesitant US abroad affect the region? I’m now joined by Gilbert Achcar, Professor of Politics at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, and Share Radio’s economics commentator Professor John Weeks.

Snapchat's culture of secrecy shadows upcoming sale
Snapchat parent company Snap has apparently chosen the New York Stock exchange to host it's IPO, it's been reported. The hotly-anticipated initial public offering may take place as soon as this week according to sources. But the Snap Inc IPO has been shrouded in the same secrecy that shadows the company. Some analysts are concerned that Snap's culture of secrecy could mean bad news for investors... or perhaps the IPO will cause problems for Snap's business model. Matt Cox looked into the company's culture of secrecy and the impact it could have.
