Switzerland’s basic income, buybacks fall most since 2009, De Bolle on Brazil impeachment
The Chinese have become the largest foreign buyers of property in the United States, pouring billions into both residential and commercial real estate. And in Switzerland, a non-binding vote on instituting a universal basic income is coming just next month. Boom Bust host Ameera David weighs in.
Then Boom Bust’s Bianca Facchinei details how the number of migrants entering the EU via Italy now far outstrips the number entering via Greece. Afterwards, RT correspondent Ashlee Banks updates us on the latest in EU antitrust proceeds against Google as well as Google’s decision to remove any ads from payday lenders from its ad network.
After the break, Ameera sits down with Monica de Bolle, visiting fellow at the Peterson Institute, about what to expect in Brazil now that Dilma Rousseff is headed for an impeachment trial. And in today’s Big Deal, Ameera and Edward Harrison discuss the fact that stock buybacks in the US have fallen by the largest amount since the last recession.
