This is Money: Good news or bad news?
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. It’s been another Super Thursday for the Bank of England as Mark Carney announced upgraded growth forecasts whilst still clinging doggedly to a rock bottom base rate. So good news or bad news? Despite the Governor’s optimism some are warning of a general slowdown to come which will hit the poorest households hardest, particularly given the lack of people able to save at the moment. Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce to consider some of new alternative investments available from mini-bonds to a new high street peer to peer lender. Plus we find out where money’s really made with a look inside the Royal Mint. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Well, to find out more about this aspect, our reporter Melanie Wray spoke to Pay-M's spokesman Shane Mckenna.

This is Money: Congratulations all round!
Pride is at maximum capacity this week, as the team from This is Money take Financial Website of the Year at the Headline Money Awards, and our very own Georgie Frost picked up Financial Broadcaster of the Year. After a couple of minutes of self-congratulating, It’s time to get back to the real money talk that got us the awards in the first place. Mark Carney has warned that Brexit could have devastating effects on the UK economy, though it’s bad news for under-30s no matter what, as they’ll be the first generation to be worse off than their parents. We’ll also be looking at Challenger Banks, are they really different from the big guys? And finally, Simon indulges his love of American muscle. This Is Money is presented in partnership with NS&I.
