Bernie Sanders to run again for president

The left-wing senator confirms he will run again in next year's US presidential election.

The left-wing senator confirms he will run again in next year's US presidential election. We speak to Jeff Stein, a reporter with the Washington Post, about Mr Sanders' campaign programme. Europe's largest bank, HSBC, reports lower than expected results. We discuss what's behind the group's "undeniably weak" fourth quarter. And we hear what Japan is doing to improve living and transport for its rapidly ageing population.
Nigel Cassidy is joined throughout the programme by Alexis Goldstein, activist and financial reform advocate in Washington DC, and Enda Curran, chief Asia economics correspondent for Bloomberg News in Hong Kong.
