Boom Bust: Gold above $1300
Gold prices are seeing a big boost just a day after the Fed decided to keep interest rates unchanged. And eMarketer, which tracks consumer trends, found that 25% of China’s population will make cross-border online purchases by the year 2020. Ameera David has details. Afterwards, Boom Bust’s Bianca Facchinei reports on the trial pitting the investment bank Goldman Sachs against Libya, due to Libya’s claims that Goldman is responsible for $1.2 billion in losses by Libya’s sovereign wealth fund. Then, Ameera talks to RT correspondent Anya Parampil about the lack of females on boards of directors or as CEOs in the United States.
After the break, Edward Harrison talks to Danielle DiMartino Booth, founder of Money Strong and former advisor to the Dallas Fed, about capital investment and Fed policy amid signs of a weakening US economy. And in the Big Deal, Edward and Ameera discuss some of the most salient issues surrounding Britain’s referendum on whether to leave the EU, that comes in a week’s time.
