Controversial Weedkiller Sees Price Volatility

Share prices fluctuated on investor expectations of talks surrounding glyphosate, contained in the weedkiller Round Up.

Share prices of chemical giant Bayer fluctuated on investor expectations of talks surrounding glyphosate, contained in the weed killer Round Up. Plus the delights of Euro-railing: how Britain ruled itself out of a popular Euro rail programme - and then crept back in again. And why is crazy golf and a helter skelter fairground ride on offer inside two British cathedrals? Finally, an International Monetary Fund chief takes President Donald Trump to task: but as trade wars rage, is anyone listening to multilateral organisations any more? We discuss all this with guests Alexander Kaufman, a reporter at HuffPost New York, and from ABC in New South Wales: Liz Gwynn.
