UniCredit announces plans to cut 14,000 jobs by 2019 – Bruce Packard talks Italian banking
Italy's largest bank, UniCredit, has announced plans to cut 14,000 jobs by 2019.

The move comes at a troubled time for Italian banks and the economy, with the country's third-largest bank, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, at risk of failure. Bruce Packard is a Senior Analyst at bank rating and advisory organisation, Lafferty Group, and he joined Share Radio Breakfast to discuss.

Rupee ban hurts Indian economy – could the damage get worse?
