Women & Money

Women and Money
In 1966, Barclays sent out over a million credit cards to customers. And so began a revolution in the way we shop and pay for goods. None of the customers had asked for these cards - and it was an entirely new product in the UK. Many of those who received these credit cards were women, and it meant that women could get credit without having to get a man to sign for it or act as a guarantor. Sarah Pennells and her guests discuss how credit cards have changed over the past 50 years and look at current rates and deals available.

Morning Money: Does saying goodbye to ads mean saying goodbye to news?
Advertisers are turning away from traditional print mediums, meaning news sources have had to turn to other methods to make up the revenue. Online sites for these news media companies were meant to buoy up profits, but ad-blocking technology has eaten into revenues, and now the rush is on to search for a sustainable business model in the post-ad block world. Matt Cox spoke to digital media and product strategist, Nic Newman, to find out more.

Consuming Issues: How can co-working space help new businesses flourish? Listen here to Olly Olsen from The Office Group
When you are just starting out in business, flexible co-working spaces can be the best environment to keep costs down and to help businesses to flourish. Fewer desks is one way to cut overheads - or for some of them to become hot desks - to be shared in different parts of the day buy different staff working opposite ends of the day. But that means increasingly many workers have no official home - which can be disconcerting.
