This is Money: Scrambled Brexit with a side of Carney
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. This week all eyes have been on the unreliable boyfriend of banking Mark Carney. Just days after committing to another year in the job the Governor of the Bank of England was thrust into the limelight again for Super Thursday. Meanwhile the High Court ruled parliament must be given a vote on triggering Article 50 casting further speculation on Brexit, and indeed Carney’s role in overseeing it. At any rate the Bank of England’s forecasts did not make for easy listening. Despite some hints of future growth interest rates are set to remain at rock bottom whilst inflation is set to soar leaving many to question just where they can safely invest their money. Editor Simon Lambert and Deputy Editor Adrian Lowrey join Georgie Frost this week to work out what’s on offer also weighing up alternatives such as overpaying the mortgage and investing in premium bonds, which celebrate their 60th birthday this week. Also on this week’s show they look at calls for a Government crackdown on cold calling and the prospect of a post-work economy thanks to the rise of robots and automation. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Howard Archer of IHS takes a look at what was said on Super Thursday
The Bank of England has warned that households face a sharp upturn in inflation over the next few months after tearing up its economic forecasts. The rise in the cost of living is now predicted to shoot up to 2.7% next year, nearly three times its current level of 1%. The new outlook for inflation means the Bank has dropped the suggestion that it could cut interest rates to near-zero to stimulate growth. Dr Howard Archer, Chief European & U.K. Economist/ Senior Director at IHS Economics, joined Share Radio to look at the outcomes of 'Super Thursday'.
