Morning Money: Car companies are hitching a ride to the future of driverless taxis
Ford has announced plans to mass-produce a fully autonomous self-driving car by 2021, which will most likely be available to customers as part of an Uber-like ride-sharing service. They're not the first company to head down the ride-sharing road. A series of brands have invested in taxi technology companies with the hope of one day going driverless - Toyota and Uber, VW and Gett, and General Motors and Lyft. So how likely is it that driverless taxis could become reality? Joe Aldridge spoke to David Bailey, Professor of Industry at Aston Business School, to find out.

This is Money: It's Brexit Bonanza!
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. Georgie is joined in the studio by Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard-Strauss. We’re going to be talking about the latest CMA report- could we be seeing a range of new apps to make choosing and switching bank accounts easier? And on top of that, the Bank of England cut in interest rates has caused a number of impacts since last week with some good news for first time house buyers but more worrying for savers, we’ll be looking at the effects on mortgages and pensions. Meanwhile the Bank of England has said it wants to encourage investors to take 'more risk'. So how can you make money in this post-Brexit Britain without gambling your nest egg away? And finally we’ll be tackling the perennial topic of inheritance tax. This is Money is presented by George Frost, in partnership with NS&I.
