The kink in the food delivery business

We look at the astonishing growth of food delivery companies - and their weaknesses

Food delivery services are growing, as appetites for home-delivered food makes way for a burgeoning side-hustle that benefits young people especially – but competition to make the most money sees some delivery giants pulling out of key markets; Argentine President Mauricio Macri has announced a series of "relief" measures, days after a defeat at the polls triggered economic turmoil. But will they work? A question for Jimena Blanco, Head of Latin America Research at the global risk consultancy Verisk Maplecroft. Plus, we get the analysis on the day's trading on Wall Street from Susan Schmidt of Aviva Investors, in Chicago.
