This week financial journalists Lindsay Cook and Anne Caborn take on credit. We find out which bank has earned the Golden Gloves this week. Plus how to negotiate pub rounds and splitting restaurant bills.
On the show this week, we're taking a look back at the very best of our weekly financial analysis and commentary, in partnership with NS&I, over the past few months. And what a few months it has been! From Brexit to the Bank of England rate cuts, and don’t forget the BHS and Sports Direct scandals. We’re going to take you back, and get some perspective on it all. Maybe it will start to make sense... We'll also be looking at the major takeover of Britain’s own ARM holdings, a much-loved current account getting its rates slashed, and the best and worst of Great British Auto Manufacturing.

British households remain confident in the rising value of their homes, even after the vote to leave the European Union.
That's according to Knight Frank's Sentiment Report, which shows 15% of homeowners surveyed by Knight Frank believed the price of their own house had risen last month... more than the ratio who believed house prices had fallen.
Grainne Gilmore, head of Knight Frank UK Residential Research joined the team to discuss further.
Once again, it's time for This is Money, in partnership with NS&I. This week, Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce from the Financial Website of The Year team up with Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost, to boldly proclaim the dust settled on post-Brexit Britain. Well, sort of. With pre-Brexit employment figures, and post-Brexit CPI and RPI all out, a lot of people might be unhappy with the results. Not least as Current Accounts and Annuities are slashed, and pensions deficits and house prices continue to soar. Are we in a bit of a slump, or is this just the landscape now? We'll take you through it all, and also take a look at thousands of electricity customers being over-billed due to an Imperial legacy, and Lee Boyce waxes lyrical on the joys of living at the seaside.
