(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. Plus, just more than half of the world’s population is estimated to be without Internet access, and the so-called digital divide is at the top of the agenda at a global web summit in Portugal. Today's show is sponsored by Forex and American Express.(11/09/2018)
