14 Jun Russia World Cup Gets Under Way
As the football World Cup kicks off in Moscow, we look at the financial implications. Olga Tanas is economics reporter in Moscow for Bloomberg, and we have a report from Kolkata, India, on how popular the championship is likely to be there. Also in the programme, as the European Central Bank announces it will wind down its economic stimulus by the end of the year, Russ Mould of investment company A J Bell discusses the market reaction. Following a succession of votes on Brexit in the British parliament, we look at next steps in the process with pro-Brexit Lord Digby Jones, and anti-Brexit Sebastian Dullien of the Europe Council on Foreign Relations. We meet Michelin-starred chef Jose Andrews, who has just won an award for his work to assemble kitchens to feed people in need following natural disasters. Plus we travel to Nairobi, Kenya, to hear about an initiative aimed at helping artists bring their work to market.
