Dame Esther Rantzen & Tony Neate, the CEO of Get Safe Online explains
What would you do if you found yourself on the receiving end of a scam call? Well, you're not alone if you wouldn't know what to do - in fact, one in five of us have no idea. More startlingly, according to Get Safe Online, almost half of us wouldn't be able to spot a scam at all. As a nation, we pride ourselves on our good manners and chivalry, but are we too polite for our own good? Gregor Watt was joined by Dame Esther Rantzen & Tony Neate, the CEO of Get Safe Online.

Have you ever been the victim of online fraud?
Have you ever been the victim of online fraud? New research, by internet security experts Kaspersky Lab, has revealed that a third of us have been targeted by fraud and two thirds have experienced it on more than one occasion. With the increased use of online banking and online shopping, many of us are now relying on banks in the event of financial fraud, to reimburse any money lost. Gregor Watt spoke to David Emm, Principal Security Researcher at Kaspersky Lab and began by asking whether we are being too complacent in expecting our banks to always foot the bill when we experience online fraud.

 While the amount of new office space under development is at an 8 year high, has the rate of new projects fallen since the last Office Crane Survey?
One way of gauging optimism in the state of the economy is to look at the amount of office space under construction. The level of office construction in central London is currently at its highest level in 8 years, with 14.8 million square feet of new office space currently being built. However, there are signs that rate of new developments is starting to slow. Simon was joined by Shaun Dawson, research manager at Deloitte Real Estate and author of the London Crane Survey.

Why did the inflation rate fall unexpectedly last month?

Why did the inflation rate fall unexpectedly last month?
The inflation rate fell unexpectedly last month. The Consumer Prices Index dropped to 0.9% in October, down from 1% in September. The falling price of clothing and university tuition fees has held the inflation rate back this month, as the fall in the value of the pound has so far not fed through to consumers. Simon spoke to Pete Comely, our resident inflation expert and author of Inflation Matters.

Emerging Opportunities With Gavin Serkin

Emerging Opportunities: Solar energy under Trump's shadow
This is Emerging Opportunities, the only show on radio dedicated to global emerging markets. Your hosts are Share Radio's Juliette Foster and Gavin Serkin, the Managing Editor of the Frontier Funds Consultancy and author of 'Frontier: Exploring the Top Ten Emerging Markets of Tomorrow'. Well, as the world absorbs the magnitude of change about to be unleashed by American President-elect Donald Trump, one constituency feeling particularly nervous is the green energy lobby. Trump has dismissed evidence of mankind's impact on climate change as a "hoax" and President Obama's Clean Power Plan to cut plant emissions as a "war on coal." He's also vowed to "cancel" last year's Paris climate accord - an agreement by 190 countries to reduce carbon dioxide emissions - and says he'll dismantle the Environment Protection Agency. One company whose world Trump has changed in the space of a week is JCM Power. Juliette and Gavin were joined all the way from Toronto by the company's co-Founder and Chief Executive, Christian Wray.

The Weeks Update: Ghana's fragility
Next month, the people of Ghana will vote in presidential and parliamentary elections against a backdrop of rising inflation and economic uncertainty. President John Dramani Mahama - who took power in 2012 - is looking to win a second term, though if he succeeds he'll face a series of uphill challenges. Second quarter GDP fell to 2.5% after a first quarter surge of 4.8%, while 30% of government revenue is paying off external debts, which according to anti-poverty groups is worsening Ghana's already fragile situation. Share Radio's Juliette Foster was joined in the studio by Tim Jones, Senior Policy and Campaigns Officer for the Jubilee Debt Campaign, and Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
