Trumped-up growth: How the US president-elect could help the global economy

The OECD says Donald Trump's spending plans could boost growth in the United States and help other developed economies too. It expects the US economy to grow by more than previously forecast. We take a closer look.

 
Also in this programme:
  • Another deadline is looming for Greece. The European Union and the IMF have agreed to start talks on reducing the country's debt mountain by the end of the year if Athens carries out promised reforms to its economy.
     
  • And we'll be telling you about the expanding Danish supermarket selling food that's past its sell-by date.
