EU fines three banks over Euribor rate rigging
The European Commission has fined Credit Agricole, HSBC and JP Morgan Chase a total of 485 million euros ($520 million) for their alleged participation in a cartel to manipulate the price of the Euribor financial benchmark. The Commission said on Wednesday they were part of a seven-bank cartel that colluded between September 2005 and May 2008 to distort the Euribor interest rate which was set using quotes submitted by a panel of banks and is widely used in international money markets. Ben Kumar, Investment Manager at Seven Investment Management, joined Share Radio to discuss.

Councillor Anthony Taylor on the Tata Steel £1bln rescue deal

Community Union made the announcement following talks with Tata and other unions Unite and GMB on Wednesday. But workers still have to agree to it and will be balloted in the new year. Councillor Anthony Taylor, former worker at the Port Talbot steel plant, joined Share Radio to discuss the deal.

Why has the number of workers living in poverty reached a new high?
The number of workers living in poverty has reached a record high - at more than 7 million people. According to a report commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the UK's housing crisis is fuelling growing insecurity. 3.8 million workers, or one in eight, are in poverty after an increase since the economy started recovering six years ago and a total of 7.4 million people, including 2.6 million children, are living in poverty despite being part of working households. To discuss the research in more detail, Simon was joined by Kate Bell, head of economics at the TUC.

The fall in immigration of 91,000 is predicted for a 'mid range Brexit', what does this mean?

The fall in immigration of 91,000 is predicted for a 'mid range Brexit', what does this mean?
Two issues which dominated the UK's Brexit referendum debate were immigration and the economy. But sharp falls in migration post Brexit could shrink GDP per capita by more than 3 percent. That's according to a report by NIESR fellow Jonathan Portes and NIESR research assistant Giuseppe Forte. The report, titled "The Economic Impact of Brexit-induced Reductions in Migration," found that a fall in total immigration of 91,000, would mean that GDP per capita would be 3.4% lower by 2030 than it would otherwise have been. To find out more about the report, Simon spoke to Jonathan Portes Senior Fellow at NIESR and co-author of the report.
