Brazil’s fiscal options and Saudi’s US debt backstory

India’s economy expands by 7.6% and Bitcoin is booming again – the digital currency is up 21 percent. Ameera David has the details. Then Boom Bust’s Bianca Facchinei details how, with the relationship between the US and Saudi Arabia tense recently, new details on an old economic agreement between the two are emerging. Afterwards, RT correspondent Ashlee Banks updates us on the potential deal between telecom giant Verizon and its striking workers.

After the break, Ameera is joined by Monica de Bolle, non-resident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, to discuss the economic situation in Brazil in the wake of the latest scandal and currency fall. And in the Big Deal, Edward Harrison and Ameera discuss economic events in India, Germany and China.
