The US and several other nations have blamed Chinese hackers for a major breach of tech giant Microsoft. Boom Bust’s Ben Swann joins the program to analyze the accusations and what they mean in an age of growing cybersecurity concerns. Then, we turn to the oil sector, where OPEC and its allies have agreed to boost production as demand has continued to surge. Michele Schneider of Market Gauge shares her insight into the latest turn in the petro sector and the major dive in global markets. Later, we take a look at the UK, where the nation is celebrating its “Freedom Day” as the government has lifted most of its Covid-19 restrictions. Hilary Fordwich of the British-American Business Association gives her take on the reopening and how the nation is navigating trade in a post-Brexit world.
