This is Money: Paying More With Less
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio Podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. We’ve had a few stats to digest this week with inflation continuing to rise, now up 1.8%, whilst employment remains at record highs according to the ONS. Behind the figures though we’re hearing much of this is based on freelance and zero-hours work with both salaries and interest rates failing to keep pace with the cost of living. With all this spelling disaster for savers there’s been a few interesting additions to Money Mail’s Best Buy table this week. Joining Georgie Frost to go through the options is Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus. Plus, we take a look at the new rate hikes threatening the future of small businesses and the costs of bereavement.

 The chancellor's insisting he's 'listening' to concerns rising business rates could push firms out of business.
The chancellor's insisting he's 'listening' to concerns rising business rates could push firms out of business. The communities secretary Sajid Javid has been accused of misleading fellow Tory MPs. More than one in four companies faces bigger bills as a result of planned changes from April. But critics say the revaluation unfairly hits high street businesses. Alan Soady from the Federation of Small Businesses told Share Radio's James Brydges that the rate change was one more challenge that businesses were having to face.
