November 09, 2018

(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service… U.S. crude oil prices have fallen 20 percent from their recent high, and the global benchmark isn’t far behind. So, what’s weighing on global prices? Then: Greece’s merchant shipping fleet, one of the world’s biggest by tonnage, is likely to feel the pain of sanctions on Iran’s oil.

Today's show is sponsored by Forex and American Express.(11/09/2018)
