Now that Donald Trump has won the presidential election, who is the man that will be running one of the most powerful nations on Earth? Matt Cox takes a retrospective look at Trump's life and career, and what this means moving forward.
The odds of a December interest rate hike in the US have diminished.

The world holds its breath as American voters hit the ballot box today for the 2016 US presidential election. Not only could the international community be dealing with a populist President in the shape of Donald Trump - his victory will heighten wariness of populism stirring elsewhere in the world.
