Ok, back to today’s exclusives. I write on the latest European data and why the ECB is losing credibility. Credit guru, John Tierney, explains why low rates are actually the problem for credit markets. UK expert, Jason Simpson, thinks the Bank of England could still cut rates even with Brexit optimism. Finally, big thinker, Gary Licht, describes how populism is about to swing to the left across major developed countries.
