Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. It’s the start of a new era as Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Meanwhile across the pond Theresa May swore out of Europe spelling out her 12 point plan for leaving. What of the impact on the pound in your pocket though? It’s rapidly devaluing on the back of uncertainty whilst rising inflation threatens to strip its spending power further, especially if saved in one of Britain’s worst accounts. To add to the misery there’s also a warning from Mark Carney we may be storing up problems overspending and racking up debt. To make sense of all these financial woes current and future Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus. They also discuss how to solve some of the biggest money rip-offs and financial wrongs whilst Simon takes on a new road tax which could see a small hatchback being charged the same as a 5.0 litre Mustang. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.
