Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. This week of course the top financial story was Philip Hammond’s first, and indeed last, Autumn Statement. Just what state are the country’s post-Brexit finances in, and crucially what would the Chancellor offer to help his much referenced ‘Jams’? In the end those ‘just about managing’ certainly received a few headline policies but with predictions pointing towards low growth, high borrowing and high inflation many argue Jam spending has been spread too thin. There were also some losers with those enjoying salary sacrifice perks and letting agents coming into the crosshairs, as well as in fact the Autumn Statement itself which will now be scrapped. So what will all this mean for the pound in your pocket? Georgie Frost joins editor Simon Lambert and reporter Becky Rutt to answer just that. Also on the agenda this week they discuss Black Friday and for a slightly different purchase the opportunity to buy a road legal Formula 1 car. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.
It's time again for This Is Money, Editor Simon Lambert and Development Editor Rich Browning join Georgie to talk through the hottest stories coming from the award-winning finance website. Top on everyone's minds is the passing of Prince, but thoughts turn as well to a sticky problem, when can a music fan demand money back if the bands line-up changes? Also, we take a long hard look at property, Simon confesses an old love, and a new device protects againt card skimming. This is Money is presented with NS and I.
The team from this is money, the award winning financial website, are back in the studio with Georgie for their weekly catch up. This week they take a look at: the UK's relationship with the EU; robots on the rise in the workplace; the likelihood of young people having to work up until they die; and haggling for you insurance.
