The Bigger Picture: What is the future for Labour, America's socialist soul & Iran cosying up to Venezuela
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University asks what the future is for Labour, wondering whether the party needs a strategic refresh, possibly even linking up with the Libdems, if it's to avoid the fate of many left-wing parties in Europe. He discusses why, despite the common perception of the USA, America has always had a socialist side to it dating back to its earliest European settlers. And he expresses concern about the way in which Iran and Venezuela appear to have become bedfellows, helping each other to avoid the effects of sanctions.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Vulnerable routers, wine bottle NFTs, smart water & transparent wood
Steve Caplin worries about the vulnerabilities of pre-2018 routers. The latest NFT (non-fungible token) is for wine bottle pictures. The UK's first electric bus will arrive this year. The Swiss Army Knife not only has a "pharmaceutical spatula" but also a "Swiss Army for Her" perfume. Councils are trialling smart lighting to move commuters and the Co-op is issuing smart water to use against aggressive customers and shoplifters. Jeff Bezos is holding an auction for a space flight. Transparent wood may soon incorporate orange peel. And why you should hope your surgeon is playing hiphop or rap rather than classical music.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Will commodities soar instead of stocks?
In the light of market reaction to Janet Yellen's comments about inflation, Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, asks if markets are at a major turning point? If inflation is making a comeback, what would the effect be for equities; should investors be thinking about real assets rather than paper assets. With, apparently, 41% of US household assets now in the stock market, are equities exhibiting too much exuberence?

This Is Money: Are you itching to spend after lockdown or planning to save?
Are you itching to spend or planning to save? Lockdown savers are forecast by the Office of Budget Responsibility to have stashed away £180billion by the middle of this year. That collective cash pile has been built up by those who have been fortunate enough not to see their finances hit by the pandemic, but have seen their outgoings drop substantially. We’ve already seen some big spending themes come out of this, as people splash out on everything from home improvements, to luxury garden furniture, expensive pizza ovens and hot tubs. The expectation is that as lockdown eases and people are released into the hoped for freedom that vaccines bring, they will go on a spending spree. But will that definitely happen and will the economic rebound be strong enough to create a virtuous circle that delivers the much-talked about Roaring Twenties? Or will people be more cautious and adopt their newfound savings habit more permanently? Georgie Frost, Helen Crane and Simon Lambert, dig into the save vs spend debate and look at how the giant behavioural and psychological experiment that lockdown represents might play out for the economy and people’s personal finances. Also on this week’s episode, the team look at both investing in the big themes of the coming decades and buying a holiday let for profit. And finally, if a fence comes down how do you find out who has to pay for it and is there any truth in the old ‘yours is the one on the left’ rule?
