A hard Brexit is on the cards with Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May saying that the UK will no longer be part of the European Union's single market and customs union after it leaves. We get reaction from Huw van Steenis, global head of strategy at the investment firm Schroders, Kevin Ellis, chairman of the the global accountancy firm PWC and Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive of the advertising firm WPP. Plus, Anthony Scaramucci, Donald Trump's top advisor from Wall Street, who is joining the president-elect's White House team, tells us why Mr Trump is the best manager he's ever worked for and with.

Colletta Smith and Mickey Clark examine the impact of Theresa May's Brexit deal plans and what they could mean for UK trade. Also with president-elect Donald Trump promising a quick free trade with the UK after it quits Europe we ask one business what it's like dealing with the US.
Relations between the US and China don't look like getting any warmer in the near future. Donald Trump's questioning of the One-China policy on Taiwan hasn't gone down well in Beijing. Now President Xi Jinping has used his appearance at the World Economic Forum to attack President-Elect Trump's protectionist views. Is China about to steal America’s role as lead cheerleader of free trade and globalisation? We hear from a Chinese tech entrepreneur, Daisy Guo, and investment banker Anthony Scaramucci who is on the executive committee of Mr Trump's transition team. British Prime Minister Theresa May has revealed her negotiating position for leaving the European Union, indicating a preference for a hard Brexit out of the single market and the customs union. Critics say this outcome would mean Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland once again being split by a hard border, with ramifications for the economies on both sides. Danny McCoy of the Irish Business and Employers' Confederation outlines the issues at stake. Juliana Liu in Hong Kong brings us up to date on stories making the headlines in Asia, including China investigating the factories accused of making fake food seasoning and US tech companies in China laying off workers. How should politicians best respond to satire and shaming? If you're Donald Trump it seems no imitation or skit can pass without a comment in kind. Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep have both recently been on the sharp end of his late-night tweets. We discuss with comedienne Aida Rodriguez how Mr Trump's victory is changing political stand-up comedy. Plus Nicole Childers, senior producer for Marketplace Morning in Los Angeles, joins us as a guest and explains how the business of buying and selling sneakers is becoming so big that some shrewd shoe traders are able to give up their day jobs. Fergus Nicoll is also joined throughout by Madhavan Narayanan in Delhi, who is a columnist and tech writer. (Picture: Dollar and Yuan - Picture Credit: Fred Dufour/Getty Images)
China's president has been discussing trade at the World Economic Forum in Davos. Daisy Guo is a Chinese entrepreneur who tells us she welcomes Mr Xi's stance. Meanwhile, Anthony Scaramucci, a senior adviser to Donald Trump, explains the president-elect's approach to trade. Also in the programme, businesses in the UK have been responding to prime minister Theresa May's vision for a "clean" Brexit, confirming that Britain will leave the European single market. We get the perspective of Christopher Nieper from clothing manufacturers David Nieper, who voted to leave the EU, and Hayden Wood, co-founder of the energy sector start-up Bulb, who voted to remain. Plus the BBC's Joe Miller meets a group of arctic and antarctic scientists hoping to raise the profile of climate change at the World Economic Forum. (Picture: Xi Jinping.

By the end of the week, the United States will have a new president. But while there's been any amount of speculation about what Donald Trump may do in office - with the full-throated support of a Republican-dominated Congress - one thing we can say for sure is that one big campaign promise is already being kept. The Affordable Care Act - derided by its opponents as Obamacare - is already in the process of being repealed. Formalities got underway last Thursday in the Senate. At half past one in the morning, the Senate voted by 51 to 48 to send the measure to the House of Representatives. That vote - 227 to 198 - means that important provisions of the law can be repealed without the threat of a Democratic filibuster in the Senate. Lauren Gambino, the Guardian newspaper's Washington DC reporter, tells us what's being going on since those votes. The National Farmers Federation in Australia is trying to rally support to stop the army taking over nearly a million acres of grazing land in Northern and Central Queensland. The Australian Defence force wants to expand its training options as part of what's called a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership with Singapore. Tony Mahar is CEO of the National Farmers Federation - and we caught up with him in Townsville. All this and more discussed with our two guests: Alexis Goldstein, activist and financial reform advocate, is in Washington DC. And Catherine Yeung, Investment Director at Fidelity Worldwide Investment, is in Hong Kong.

Other topics included the fact that U.S. travelers make 140 different website visits (on average) before booking a trip (do you know your customers' path before they make a decision on your product or service?); some companies have turned insults and attacks by the President-elect into badges of honor -- and merchandise for sale; getting people to share your content isn't as big a deal as some marketers think, so what does it take to amplify your content (and what should we be measuring)?

The social network plans to work with fact checkers to mark 'disputed' stories. Political journalist Torsten Riecke from Germany's business daily Handelsblatt describes concerns in Germany over fake news, and Johnny Haeusler from wired.com in Berlin tells us it might be difficult for fact checkers to separate facts, lies and opinions. Also in the programme, an ambitious project has been launched to build one of the longest power lines in the world, across India. Claudio Facchin of the Swiss engineering giant ABB tells us about the plan. A survey suggests nearly half of all working dads want less stressful careers so they can care for their children. Sam Smethers from gender equality charity the Fawcett Society argues that improving the situation for men would help parents of both sexes. Plus the BBC's Regan Morris reports from Los Angeles on women and their support for president-elect Trump. (Picture: Facebook logos. Picture credit: Getty Images.)

The tech industry was a vocal opponent of Donald Trump during the election campaign, but might some of the biggest tech companies actually benefit from his presidency? We speak to Silicon Valley tech commentator Larry Magid about what they can expect. Also, Alex Steffen, an American futurist who writes and speaks about sustainability and the future of the planet, tells us what he thinks Mr Trump's presidency will mean for America's growing renewable energy sector, given that Mr Trump is a big supporter of the coal industry and has expressed doubts about climate change. And the BBC's Regan Morris reports from Los Angeles on women and their support for President-elect Trump.

More information related to stories featured in this week's edition of Money Box can be found in the Related links section below. Money Box hears from David who paid £3,400 for a motor home he'd found online. Only he hadn't. Instead his cash ended up in a TSB bank account controlled by criminals. His attempts to get his money back from his own bank failed as did two appeals to the Financial Ombudsman. TSB also initially rejected him twice but have now paid him back. Why has that finally happened and what can, or can't, the Financial Ombudsman do when a victim of fraud tries to reclaim their cash from an account that's been set up by scammers? It's been a record-breaking week for the FTSE 100. London's main share index marked the longest run of 12 consecutive days of closing record highs. The last time it did that was 1997 when it managed eight days in a row. Russ Mould, Investment Director at AJ Bell and independent market analyst Brenda Kelly discuss whether it's a cause for celebration or concern. Just over 4 million couples qualify for the marriage allowance tax break. It allows people who are married or in a civil partnership, who don't pay tax, to transfer some of their unused personal allowance to their spouse who does. The latest figures from HMRC reveal that 1.39 million couples have claimed. Robin Williamson, Technical Director of the Low Incomes Tax Reform Group outlines how it works and how you can get it. Presenter: Paul Lewis Reporter: Tony Bonsignore Producer: Charmaine Cozier Editor: Andrew Smith.
Japan's Takata Corporation is to plead guilty to criminal wrongdoing and to pay one billion dollars in fines and compensation to settle an investigation by the US Justice Department. Airbags inflators made by the company have been linked to at least sixteen deaths worldwide, and prompted the largest vehicle safety recall in US history. Paul A. Eisenstein, publisher of The Detroit Bureau.com tells us that there was some surprise that the fine had not been more severe. Is support for one of the European Union's founding pillars - the freedom of movement - crumbling? Many people who voted for Brexit in the UK, did so because they felt the country had lost control over the numbers of EU migrants. Yesterday, Austria's Chancellor said he'll ask the European Union to let local employers hire Austrians before other EU citizens, unless there are no suitable candidates. He said incomers were putting pressure on the jobs market. And today the Deputy Prime minister of the Netherlands told the BBC that the freedom of movement needs fundamental reform. Lodewijk Asscher told our Economics Editor Kamal Ahmed that support was falling across Europe for the rule, which he said was being used as a 'business model for lowering wages.' Executive pay packets, by contrast, have been spiralling. This week Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the UK Labour party, rekindled the debate on high pay, saying that a 'cap' should be considered for the highest earners. But is that even possible and what impact might it have on economic growth? The economist Will Hutton was tasked by the government of David Cameron to look at limiting public sector pay. He's now Principal of Hertford College, Oxford. He explains why ultimately, he doesn’t think a maximum wage is achievable. All this and more discussed with Peter Ryan, The ABC's Senior Business Correspondent. (Photo: The logo of the Japanese auto parts maker, Takata, is displayed at a car showroom in Tokyo.

The US Environmental Protection Agency says Fiat-Chrysler has broken the law by not telling the authorities about software in Jeeps and Dodge vehicles that regulates emissions and - they say - causes higher nitrogen oxide levels. John German, a senior fellow at the International Council on Clean Transportation in Washington, discusses whether this is the VW case all over again? According to a Financial Times investigation, China has recently become the dominant force in commercial shipping, after sharply increasing its investment in ports around the world and boosting the traffic that its big liner companies handle. There are also suggestions that Beijing is pursuing a "dual use" strategy, constructing ports for developing countries which are ostensibly for commercial use, but then using them to promote the projection of Chinese naval power into strategically sensitive parts of the world. We hear from James Kynge, the FT's Emerging Markets Editor. Thousands of buyers are flocking to Asia's biggest toy fair, now underway in Hong Kong. High-tech so-called smart toys are capturing plenty of attention. The BBC's Juliana Liu has been having a play. Our North America editor Jon Sopel, looks back at President Obama’s legacy and contrasts this with the style of incoming President Trump. A new job is being advertised by officials in Austria. They are looking for someone to live as a hermit in a remote chapel hacked out of a cliff in the Austrian mountains near Salzburg. It will be austere - no hearing or running water - but you will only have to stay there between April and November. Peter Arp is an Austrian journalist who knows the hermitage well – so why is there a need for a new hermit? Roger Hearing is joined for comment throughout the programme by Alison van Diggelen, presenter of Fresh Dialogues in Stanford, California, and Stephanie Studer, Bureau Chief for The Economist in Seoul, South Korea.

Eight days before he officially takes office, the incoming President Donald Trump took aim at the intelligence services for allegedly leaking information relating to him, blasted media organisations as 'garbage' and peddlers of 'fake news', denied there would be any conflict of interest between his office and his business empire and fired warnings to big pharma companies and the motor industry once again. Watching all this carefully was Dan Lippman - a reporter with Politico, and co-author of Politico Playbook - what was his highlight? It's not just President elect Trump who's upset with a major corporation, India's external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj is on the warpath too, with the internet giant Amazon the subject of her ire. Anahita Mukherji, former assistant editor at The Times of India, tells us why. A Bangladesh court has issued a judgement, requiring doctors to type their prescriptions or write them in block capitals. In an age when so many of us have access to computers, is handwriting really still an important skill, and if so are we any good at it? Jan Olsen, an occupational therapist in Maryland and the founder of Handwriting Without Tears, a teaching programme in the US is here to tell us why it is. The BBC's Roger Hearing is joined throughout the hour from Singapore by Parag Khanna, author of the new book 'Technocracy in America: Rise of the Info-State' and senior fellow at the Lee Kuan Yew School. And from Raleigh, North Carolina, by August Turak, entrepreneur and author of 'The Business Secrets of Trappist Monk'. (Picture: President-elect Donald Trump speaks at a news conference at Trump Tower in New York City. Photo by Spencer Platt. Getty Images.)
We reflect on an at times explosive news conference from incoming President Trump, with Lawrence Korb,senior fellow at the Centre for American Progress and former assistant secretary of defence under President Reagan, as well as market reaction from Doug McIntyre of 24/7 Wall Street.
Donald Trump is to hand over management of his business empire to his sons when he assumes office. In his first press conference, he also suggested US intelligence agencies may have leaked a dossier containing compromising information about him. Also in the podcast, the former boss of the oil giant Exxon Mobil - Mr Trump's pick as secretary of state - has been facing tough questions in Congress, Norway becomes the first country in the world to start switching off its FM radio network, and we hear why cyber attacks are increasingly big business:
Email your comments and questions about the future of passwords to firstname.lastname@example.org From 1pm to 3.30pm on Wednesday 11 January you can call 03700 100 444, standard geographic charges from landlines and mobiles will apply. Passwords are everywhere. The government conservatively estimates that on average we have 25 online accounts which require one and recent research shows 60% of us struggle to remember them. With dire warnings about the consequences of writing them down or using the same one for everything, the passwords we tend to create are weak and based on information hackers have easy access to. So what is the solution to keeping everything secure yet allowing us unfettered access to our online accounts? Adam Shaw and guests explore what a post-password future might look like. Panel includes: Lawrence Munro - SpiderLabs, Trustwave Angela Sasse - Professor of Human-Centred Security. UCL Charlie McMurdie - Senior Cyber Crime Advisor,PwC Presenter: Adam Shaw Producer: Alex Lewis Editor: Andrew Smith.
The technology of bionics is advancing rapidly. We look at its commercial applications and ask where it will all lead. The BBC's Laurence Knight reports from a hospital in England that successfully restored sight to a blind person by using electronic implants. Also, Professor John Donoghue of the Wyss Center for Bio and Neuro-engineering in Geneva, Switzerland, tells presenter Manuela Saragosa about how chips may one day be able to listen to your thoughts, and Ramez Naam, a former Microsoft executive turned science fiction novelist, explains why in future the distinction between what is human and what is machine may become ever more blurred.

In ten days, President Obama will leave the White House. But as the current President gives his farewell speech in his home town of Chicago, key players from the team assembled by the man set to replace Mr Obama in just over a week, President elect Donald Trump, are being confirmed to their cabinet posts in Washington. And many eyes will be on Mr Trump;s pick as Secretary of State, the former oil boss, Ex ExxonMobil chief executive Rex Tillerson. Jordan Fabian, White House Correspondent for The Hill tells us why. A lack of investment spending in emerging markets is strangling economic growth in those countries. That's the warning from the World Bank in its annual global forecast. The report's lead author, Franziska Ohnsorge, talks to us about that, China, and trying to get a read on the Trump administration. It's the swankiest week of schmoozing and high powered financial dealing of the year, and all against the backdrop of the snowy Swiss Alps. But why is the World Economic Forum in Davos such a pull for the World's business elite? Sandra Navidi - author of a new book called Superhubs: How the Financial Elite & Their Networks Rule Our World is here to tell us. And, don't fancy becoming an air force pilot but still fancy travelling faster than the speed of sound? The answer used to be buy a ticket for Concorde, until the transatlantic supersonic plane landed for the final time in 2003. But could a very high speed return to supersonic passenger travel be on the horizon, the BBC's Business Correspondent Theo Leggett has been taking a look. To pilot us through the hour, the BBC's Fergus Nicoll is joined from Los Angeles by Raghu Manavalan, a broadcaster at Marketplace and from Singapore by Nisid Hajari, Asia Editor for Bloomberg View.

There isn't enough investment in emerging economies - and it's becoming a problem. The World Bank has sounded the alarm in its latest report on the health of the global economy. We hear from the report's lead author, Franzika Ohnsorge. And, has the Trump bounce on the New York Stock Exchange begun to slow? Joe Saluzzi from Themis Trading gives his take on the day's trading on Wall Street.
