From the BBC World Service... Britain's competition watchdog has thrown a proposed tie-up between Sainsbury's and Walmart-owned Asda into doubt. Walmart's sales have been growing as the retail giant focuses on upping its game against Amazon. We'll explore what’s next amid a rapidly changing retail landscape. Then, in a surprise announcement, commodities giant Glencore said it will cap coal production going forward. And we'll explore what Brexit means for the fishing industry.

Today's show is sponsored by the United States Postal Service, the University of Florida Warrington College of Business and Indeed.
