Major stockmarkets have been hit after US President Trump threatened new China tariffs. Simon Rabinovitch is Asia economics editor at The Economist in China, and tells us about the impact there, whilst we also get US reaction from Susan Schmidt, head of US equities at Aviva Investors. Also in the programme, South Africa heads to the polls on Wednesday, and we hear how tackling unemployment is a key issue in the election. We meet an entrepreneur who set up his own business to deal with joblessness, and Busiswe Radabe, economist with Nedbank explains what policy changes might help South Africa's economy to thrive. Plus our regular workplace commentator Stephanie Hare makes the case for inviting children as young as 10 to sample life at work.
