Morning Money: “Economic forecasts have a low amount of credibility” – Jeremy Cook on the IMF's UK growth forecast
The International Monetary Fund has defended the grim warnings it made about the potential impact of the UK voting to leave the EU, with its chief economist saying it would have been “malpractice” not to have considered worst-case scenarios. The comments came after the fund nudged up its 2016 growth forecast for the UK but cut the 2017 forecast once again. Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist at World First, joined Share Radio to offer his view on the forecasts.

This Is Money: Project Fear becomes Project Not So Bad After All
Welcome to This is Money, the show and podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. This week, editor Simon Lambert is away, so Share Radio's Georgie Frost is teaming up with Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce to dive into the biggest money stories this week. And this week, it seems all the Brexit Doom-and-Gloom might have been all for nought, as OECD figures show Briton's are weathering the storm nicely. But don't breathe out just yet, as we take a close look at economic evaluations, models and predictors. Are they worth the time? We'll find out. And the banks aren't feeling too comfortable with this news, as they slash valuation terms in preparation for a housing slump. We'll also be looking at one of the crown jewels of the last budget losing it's shine, and we'll find out just how susceptible to a nudge you might be.

The Week's Update: How radical does the EU's economics action need to be?
Now that the UK has voted to leave the bloc, the remaining 27 states will push hard to ensure their interests are protected in any future negotiations. Yet in planning a future without Britain, Mr Tusk and his colleagues will also have to take a long hard look at the EU's current economic model. Against a backdrop of low growth and high unemployment - especially amongst the young - some analysts believe the EU's long-term survival lies in taking bold economic steps. How radical does it need to be? Doctor Engelbert Stockhammer is Professor of Economics at Kingston University, and he joined Juliette in the studio, along with Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.

Meanwhile, a Pensions Roadblock is what we're calling people scared off from trying to get their nest egg in order. Is it just a bit complicated, or totally hopeless?

This is Money: Soy Lattes or Despair? Take your pick.
Welcome to This is Money, presented in partnership with NS&I. On this episode we're seeing the quicksand deepening for savers, as another base rate cut looms, and savings rates plummet through the floor. Bad news especially those under 30, the so-called Millenials or YOLO Generation. But is it their fault they know so little about money, and have even less hope for the future? We'll also be looking at some spare change that could bring you a mint, critical illness insruance that doesn't necessarily cover you for critical illnesses, and the greatest weapon in the fight against scammers: Information.
