The Investment Trust Show: Featuring Michael Adams and James Henderson
Time now for our regular weekly programme "The Investment Trust Show" brought to you in association with Henderson Global Investors. Each week we explore the main features, factors and developments affecting investment trusts. This week we'll be taking a look at the Law Debenture Investment Trust which is a rather unusual trust. Established in 1889, like most trusts it invests in a range of companies. But it also operates a corporate services business that generates income for Law Debenture shareholders. Share Radio's Simon Rose is joined by Michael Adams, Chief Executive of Law Debenture and the manager of Law Debenture, James Henderson as well as Share Radio's Senior Analyst Ed Bowsher.

How should our schools equip young people for life in the wider world?
How should our schools equip young people for life in the wider world? As a supplement to traditional academic subjects, schools have dealt with life's more delicate topics through personal, social, health, and economic education - or PSHE. Caroline Lucas MP, Co-Leader of the Green Party, has been a long-time campaigner for such education - and today her renewed attempt at making PSHE a statutory requirement will be debated by Parliament. Share Radio's Alex Clark spoke to Caroline Lucas, and first asked how she understood PSHE.

What lies in store for America in the Trump years ahead?
This time tomorrow, Donald Trump will have been sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. After a campaign seemingly exempt from the rules adhered to by other White House contenders, the incoming tweeter-in-chief has left the Washington establishment scratching their heads. Now, America and indeed the world will watch as Mr. Trump - on a platform outside the US Capitol - pledges to faithfully execute the highest office in the land. Simon was joined by Charlie Wolf, British based American radio talk-show host and formerly the Communications Director of Republicans Abroad UK.

Who are the 'elite'?
The world's rich and powerful have descended on Davos for the World Economic Forum - the 1%'s annual pilgrimage to the temple of globalisation. But, this year, a sense of unease will almost certainly shadow any worship at the altar, with the liberal world order having had not one but two slaps to the face from Brexit and then Trump. So, what exactly makes the global elite, well, elite? And what do they get up to behind closed doors? To find out, Share Radio's Alex Clark spoke to Daniel Levin, author of 'Nothing but a Circus: Misadventures among the Powerful'.

OBR: UK debt on "unsustainable path"

OBR: UK debt on "unsustainable path"
Public finance is on "an unsustainable path" according to data. The Office for Budget Responsibility, or OBR, has claimed that Chancellor Philip Hammond is likely to find it impossible to balance the books in the coming years without cutting spending or raising taxes. The Chancellor said in his Autumn Statement he expected the deficit to be 2 percent of GDP by 2020, revised down from previous chancellor George Osborne's plans to have a budget surplus by the end of next parliament. But the OBR says that public sector debt could go from being 82 percent of GDP now to a staggering 234 percent over the next fourty years. It blamed the increased spending on the NHS and state pensions in particular. To understand what this means for the UK, Share Radio's Matt Cox spoke to Suren Thiru, Head of Economics at the British Chambers of Commerce.

Share Politics: Great Brexpectations
24 hours have passed since Theresa May delivered her much anticipated speech on Brexit, pinning down her negotiating priorities after weeks of speculation. The Prime Minister told a crowded hall that Britain "cannot possibly" remain within the single market, arguing that a "half in, half out" approach to Brexit is no exit at all. She also confirmed that Parliament WILL have a vote on the final Brexit deal. For reaction to Theresa May's Brexit speech, Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined one by Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrat's spokesperson for Foreign Affairs, and Roger Godsiff, MP for Birmingham Hall Green and member of Labour Leave - a group of Labour MPs who campaigned for Brexit.
