Money: Takeover Bids – September 8th 09

Andy Verity and Mickey Clark present this morning’s business stories, including:
Yesterday Kraft put in an unsolicited $16.7bn bid for Cadbury’s and there’s ongoing debate over what Deutsche Telekom will do with T-mobile.
The latest employment outlook survey from the recruitment company Manpower is released this morning.
We also look at a report from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors which says pressure on landlords to cut rents has eased.
Finally, talk of a recovery on the high street looks to have been premature. That’s according to the British Retail Consortium which speaks for our shops.
