Spread betting firms plunged 30% earlier today after the Financial Conduct Authority announced new regulations for the sector. Chief among their fears was that customers using these products didn't understand them properly and as a result weren't aware of the risks involved.
Share Radio's Juliette Foster speaks to Billy Bambrough, City A.M.'s deputy news editor, to help illuminate what these products are, what the new rules entail, and which firms will be affected the most by the change.
Private debt in the UK stands at £1.5 trillion, according to the latest figures from "The Money Charity" which educates people in managing their finances. The average adult now owes almost £30,000 or just over 113% of their annual earnings, while outgoings from mortgages, loans and credit cards constitute 82% of what the entire economy produces in a year.
Yet behind the numbers lurk individual stories of hardship along with concerns about the impact of debt on the economy's long-term ability to function. So is it time for governments to change their perception of debt and to stop seeing it as the sole responsibility of those who are struggling to pay their way?
Joining Share Radio's Juliette Foster and our economics correspondent Professor John Weeks is Dr. Johanna Montgomerie, Deputy Director at the Political Economy Research Centre at Goldsmiths University.

Fears are mounting that Italian bank Monte dei Paschi's €5bn bank recapitalisation plan has been jeopardised by the political upheaval following Matteo Renzi's resignation as Prime Minister. Bankers have said that if this private sector solution does fail, the world's oldest bank may require a state bailout.
Share Radio's Juliette Foster is joined by Ferdinando Giugliano, Economics Commentator at la Repubblica based in Rome. Themes include the likelihood that a state bailout will occur, and the consequences of such a bailout.
It's day 2 of the Supreme Court hearing on Prime Minister Theresa May's bid to take Britain out of the European Union without a parliamentary vote. While the lawyers slug it out, Chancellor Philip Hammond says the government hasn't dismissed the idea of Britain paying into the EU budget even after leaving the bloc. He claims it's the only way that British companies will be able to access Europe's single market in a post-Brexit world. However Michel Barnier, Europe's Chief Negotiator, says countries outside the bloc can never have the same rights and benefits as those within. So the message to Mr Hammond: "Collez-le dans votre pipe et fumez la" - which in English means "Stick it in your pipe and smoke it!"
