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.

On this edition of This Is Money, Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard-Strauss are in to talk more Brexit fall-out, of course; will Mark Carney’s reassuring tones be enough to steady the ship, as Sterling falls further than we've seen since Walter Mondale was a relevant cultural reference? We’ll also be looking at property fund lockouts, and why you should NEVER trust them with your pension. And stay tuned to the end as we have a rare win for the little guy, to the tune of £19 Billion!

Is this the answer to the housing and care crisis?
93-year-old Paula and 47-year-old Alison might seem like unlikely roomates at first, but they're part a homeshare programme which pairs people who need a small amount of help to live independently in their own home with someone who has a housing need and can provide support or companionship. So could this be the answer to help solve a housing crisis and a care crisis at the same time? Georgie investigates with Anna McEwen from Shared Lives Plus.
