    The EU’s €750bn recovery fund aims to rejuvenate the old continent, but ten months in it faces legal challenges and is yet to pay out a cent.

And, ahead of Deliveroo’s IPO, our correspondents take to two wheels to investigate the economics of food delivery. Patrick Lane hosts.


    With Paolo Gentiloni, European commissioner for economy and former prime minister of Italy, and Tariq Fancy, former chief investment officer for sustainable investing at BlackRock.

Best source to get news

The Economist is the best source to get a broad framework of what is happening in the world.

Running after my hat 11 ,

One of the best podcasts on international finances.

The next best thing to reading the Economist for the time constrained

Plzfixit999 ,

Annoying advertising addition

Finally gave up and unsubscribed - love the podcast but being forced to listen to not one, not two but three adds from Philip Morris each time drove me to distraction

I’ll read the magazine but podcast listening is no more

Too bad, I used to enjoy it
