The Bigger Picture: Is Grexit inevitable?

The Bigger Picture: Is Grexit inevitable?
Another chapter has unfolded in Greece's slowmotion debt crisis. Earlier this week, European finance ministers and Athens agreed to negotiate economic reforms in exchange for further bailout payments. With a sovereign-debt showdown staved off, bond holders rejoiced, and yields dived on the agreement. By now, this story should be a familiar one. Ever since the financial crisis plunged Greece into turmoil, bailout brinkmanship has been a fixture in the Eurozone's calendar. But, this time, some feel the winds of change may be about to blow through Athens. If the left-wing-led government is truly willing to bend the knee to EU & IMF reforms, the austerity borne by Greece as a price for debt relief could be wound down. In turn, Greece may be freed from its low-growth malaise. What next for Greece? On today's a View From, Simon hears from Desmond Lachman, Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and previously deputy director at the IMF's Policy Development and Review Department, and Vicky Pryce, economist and author of 'Greekonomics'.

 The chancellor's insisting he's 'listening' to concerns rising business rates could push firms out of business.
The chancellor's insisting he's 'listening' to concerns rising business rates could push firms out of business. The communities secretary Sajid Javid has been accused of misleading fellow Tory MPs. More than one in four companies faces bigger bills as a result of planned changes from April. But critics say the revaluation unfairly hits high street businesses. Alan Soady from the Federation of Small Businesses told Share Radio's James Brydges that the rate change was one more challenge that businesses were having to face.
