This is Money: It's Crystall Ball time!

This is Money: It's Crystall Ball time!
Once again, it's time for the This is Money podcast. Every week, in partnership with NS&I, Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost and Financial Website of the Year This is Money team up to go through all the finance stories you need to know this week. On the agenda today, of course, The Bank of England cut interest rates as many of us predicted. We're not going to pat ourselves on the back too much for that one, but some prognosticating is definitely in order. How will this affect us in the long run? Cuts to existing savings rates have left savers nervous, and things are not looking good on the property market, as homeowner levels have dropped to their lowest in 30 years. Is this the worst time for a rate cut? We'll also be running through the new deadline for PPI claims, and Simon's round-up of the best and worst of Great British Autos. This is Money is presented by George Frost, in partnership with NS&I.
