Airing on Wednesday, January 14, 2015: The European Union's highest court has just passed judgement on the idea of Europe buying bonds to stimulate the economy there.  It would be a version of Quantitative Easing from which America's Federal Reserve has just tapered. More on that. Plus, all eyes are on the big banks this week as they report their latest earnings. How has the plunge in oil prices affected their bottom-line? And from the North American International Car Show in Detroit, we'll talk about the electric car that might go as far as a Tesla at a quarter of the price.
