The Dow Jones Industrial Average has hit yet another all-time high — and the world is following suit. Global shares are at their highest level since June of 2008, thanks to strong market performance in France, Germany, the U.K., and Japan.

The BBC’s Economics Correspondent Andrew Walker joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to take stock of markets around the world.
