The US Senate has reached a two-year, $400bn budget agreement that raises spending for defence and some domestic programmes. We hear from Democratic Congressman Jim Himes. On Monday President Trump is expected to unveil his answer to America's infrastructure problems. US economist Irwin Stelzer tells us what he was expecting to hear. And we go to Mozambique, where there is a concerted effort to get more young people involved in classical music. All this and more discussed with our two guests throughout the show: Ralph Silva of the Silva Research Network in Toronto and Catherine Yeung, Investment Director at Fidelity International in Hong Kong.
