Emerging Opportunities With Gavin Serkin

Emerging Opportunities: Investigating the record investment flooding into emerging markets
This is Emerging Opportunities, the only show on radio dedicated to global emerging markets, with Juliette Foster and Gavin Serkin, the managing editor of the Frontier Funds Consultancy, Frontera News and the author of Frontier: Exploring the Top Ten Emerging Markets of Tomorrow. It's received a fair bit of cynicism as the sucker's rally according to one Reuters piece - sustained by a herd of dumb money, according to a CNBC report. But with the exception of a relatively small interruption last week, the record investment flooding into emerging markets in the past couple of months has shown little sign of ebbing, sustained by the seemingly never-ending near-zero interest rate policies of central banks in the developed world. So, what's the best way to navigate these markets? Lisa Lewin, emerging markets economist at BMI Research, part of the Fitch Ratings group - is the guest in the studio to review the news and market moves.

The Week's Update: How radical does the EU's economics action need to be?
Now that the UK has voted to leave the bloc, the remaining 27 states will push hard to ensure their interests are protected in any future negotiations. Yet in planning a future without Britain, Mr Tusk and his colleagues will also have to take a long hard look at the EU's current economic model. Against a backdrop of low growth and high unemployment - especially amongst the young - some analysts believe the EU's long-term survival lies in taking bold economic steps. How radical does it need to be? Doctor Engelbert Stockhammer is Professor of Economics at Kingston University, and he joined Juliette in the studio, along with Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.

The Book Review: Harold James, author of "The Euro and the Battle of Ideas"
Debt crises, high unemployment and now BREXIT...it hasn't been a great year for the European Union as it fights to hold together what's left of the bloc whilst retaining and building the credibility of the single currency. Can the Euro survive or is it hamstrung by Europe's competing visions of what the future is supposed to be? It all points to a philosophical difference between the founding countries of the single currency bloc, France and Germany. Can the differences be resolved or have events reached a point from which there is no turning back. Professor Harold James, is one of three authors of the new book, The Euro and the Battle of Ideas. Harold James now joined Juliette Foster in the studio.

Themes explored within Sir Richard's new book and in the studio include rationalistic excess, scientific revolution, the inevitability of WW1 and the dramatic diplomatic ruptures that have permeated our past and present.
