The Share Radio Evening Show
Share Radio's Simon Rose brings you Market Wrap, a roundup of what's been happening in the businesses of Britain and the world. To help put the day's events in context I'm joined by Ed Bowsher, Share Radio's senior analyst. They discussed the Bank of England's prediction that the UK economy will grow by 2% in 2017, Reckitt Benckiser's plan to buy Mead Johnson Nutrition in a $16.7bn deal, worth £13.2bn that would boost its Asian business, and Sports Direct being identified as the ultimate owner of an 11% stake in French Connection.
