Juliet says the case for higher taxes on the rich will be made with growing force over the coming years and warns that such taxes are often introduced in the wake of national emergencies.

She also thinks that politicians will no longer be able to put off an honest conversation about China and the Communist state’s influence over large parts of our economy. 

Also in this episode, Christian looks at the growing speculation over the Bank of England’s flirtation with negative interest rates; the latest figures from the government’s scheme to help the self employed; and Ryanair’s gloomy forecast for the aviation sector.
