Bonuses, lending and stress tests

In this week’s podcast: As banks prepare to pay out annual bonuses estimated to total as much as £7bn, we ask whether UK prime minister David Cameron’s comments about not wanting to “micromanage” the financial sector were prudent.
We also look at UK bank lending to SMEs and we end the show with the new stress tests planned for US and European banks.

Presented by Patrick Jenkins, with Sharlene Goff.
