Can Paris steal London's crown as the new home for European finance?

With Britain's EU exit looming, banks and other financial institutions are trying to work out what it will mean for their business. If the UK loses access to the single market, it's thought that up to 100,000 jobs could be moved out of London. Already, authorities in several European countries are flinging their doors open, hoping to welcome an industry that pays more than 70 billion euros a year in taxes. Paris is among the main contenders. But does the French capital have what it takes?

Also in this programme:

  • The bad debt dilemma: how Italy's banks have become the eurozone's new weak spot.
  • Playing for pay in Japan: we tell you why traditional job interviews are being replaced with board games.
