6 Mar Update: Wall Street Leads Market Charge
With all the talk of crisis in the air, Wall Street began the week not just in more sanguine mood - but in increasingly positive territory. We hear from Peter Jankowskis from Oakbrook Investments in Chicago. An inconclusive election in Italy has failed to bring any one party to power. As the parties vie to form a government, we hear from Giada Zampano of Politico in Rome. The US primary season is upon us, the Democrats' first nationwide chance for revenge since what was for them the disaster of November 2016; in New York, Gideon Resnick who covers politics for the Daily Beast gives us his take. Plus, Frances McDormand, who won the best actress award at this year's Oscars, has proposed the widespread use of so-called 'inclusion riders' in acting contracts to expand diversity in the movie business; Dr Stacy Smith who heads the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative - which conducts detailed research into diversity - or the lack of it - in Hollywood, tells us more.
