PEOPLE & PROFIT

The business show that goes beyond the numbers and the corporate jargon! Stephen Carroll breaks down major business stories and looks at how they affect our lives. Thursday at 4.15 am Paris time.

Latest update : 2016-05-26

Are company bosses paid too much?

Shareholders at major companies like Deutsche Bank and BP have rebelled against the pay packets of top managers. In France, the remuneration plan of car manufacturer Renault's CEO has sparked particular anger - so much so that French lawmakers are now considering action.

Also on this programme:

  • Analysts and investors are debating when and how the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates. They fret as the Fed mulls the next step for the world's biggest economy.
     
  • We take a look at a very French form of flipping properties. It's called a "viager" and it's receiving more and more attention from abroad. A buyer puts up an initial lump sum, and then pays the seller a monthly fee as long as they live. Some say it's immoral, others say it's a win-win.
