Host Georgie Frost is joined by Assistant Editor Lee Boyce and motoring Editor Rob Hull. It’s the cash and cars edition. Are reports of it’s death greatly exaggerated? If not, are we as a society and our financial institutions ready to go cashless?! Big Brother claims at Lloyds; Aston Martin Gears up for a £5bn float and £48.5m for a Ferrari anyone? Bad luck, that one has just sold – but don’t worry. What about a Lada for the bargain price of 75 grand?!
Could you train your brain to get richer? Behavioural economics tells us that we regularly behave irrationally – and nudge theory has been used by governments and organisations around the world to try to make us better people. But could you take matters into your own hands, tackle your own temptations and make yourself wealthier, or just happier?
On this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost look at some tricks you can deploy – and whether you can actually turn that old chestnut about not spending money on coffee into hard cash in your bank account, pension or ISA.
Also on this week’s show, we discuss why Britain is bottom of the world pension league and whether that is actually as bad as it seems.
It's time once again for This is Money. Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs editor Lee Boyce join Georgie in the studio to discuss the biggest stories they've been looking at this week. On our show today; more Doom and Gloom over Brexit, this time it's the IMF piling on. Are you sure your bank account is secure? Well there's a number of very sophisticated scams going around, so stay alert. And then, we look at the most (and least) valuable subject choices at University. All this and more on This is Money, presented in partnership with NS&I.
