Episode Teaser Image
JPMorgan has planned to direct $100 million in investments at Detroit for homes, businesses and job training. What's the bank's goal in doing so and how much will this help? Plus, T-Mobile, already a favorite of Latinos in the U.S., is partnering with Univision to offer a phone service customized for Latino customers. Then, we head back to London where we discuss the massive influence wielded by London's Stock Exchange, a rival to New York as the number one financial center on the planet, and examine how this came about and whether London can maintain its current disproportionate status as a global financial hub. We also look at the increased use of food banks in London and a dramatic rise in use by members of the middle and upper classes who have lost jobs or can't cope with their bills anymore.
