Top risks in 2017: The danger of a more independent America

The think tank Eurasia group has produced its list of risks facing the world this year - and a more independent America under Donald Trump is in the top spot. The report says the world could be left without a leader if the United States retreats from the international stage. The absence of a superpower, the group claims, is a recipe for near-term chaos. But could a shift away from the US not perhaps be a good thing for the world? Stephen Carroll asks Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group.

Also in this programme:

  • Money for nothing: how Finland is trying out a new system of universal income, provided by the state.
  • And cheers to the City of Light: far from the vineyards of Bordeaux, we'll take you to a winery that's in the heart of Paris.
