(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service ... A very controversial figure has just become president of Brazil. Jair Bolsonaro has made waves globally for being hard right and a mean budget slicer, with strict conservative values. Will he put his money where his mouth is – and should he? Meanwhile, a crucial national budget in the UK is the last before the country leaves the EU. Also: we complain holidays in the U.S. have gotten too commercial – similar to the world’s largest democracy, India, where festival season sees goods sponsored by local businesses and dripping in diamonds. Today's show is sponsored by Alliance for Lifetime Income (retireyourrisk.org), PayPal (paypal.com)  and Selligent (selligent.com). (10/29/2018)
