Taking stock of Turkey’s economy after new Trump threat

January 14, 2019

From the BBC World Service… President Trump has threatened to “devastate” Turkey’s economy if it attacks Kurdish forces after a U.S. troop withdrawal from Syria. So, how seriously should Turkey treat the American president’s comments, and what exactly does it all mean? Then, fresh data show a new bite to the ongoing trade dispute between the U.S. and China. Afterwards, look at any major city  around the world and they all have one thing in common: A shortage of affordable housing. Now, disruptors in the north of England are taking charge. Today's show is sponsored by SignNow and Pitney Bowes.
