This Is Money: Key April changes to your personal finances including NI hike and 'no fault' divorces
This week has seen a number of changes to our personal finances in the wake of energy bill and council tax rises, along with a number of key utilities such as broadband and mobile contracts. It also marks the start of a new tax year and with it a National Insurance rise, a meagre state pension hike and the start of new 'no fault' divorce system. Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Helen Crane run through what these changes potentially mean for you and why they're important. Renting is set to become cheaper than mortgage repayments for the first time in 14 years according to a study. This could signal 'trouble ahead,' as the data shows that when this happens, often a recession follows shortly afterwards. We discuss why. The pandemic boom could also leave high-earning homeowners trapped and unable to move, if they've overstretched themselves to buy. They may be unable to remortgage as lenders consider their squeezed incomes during the cost of living crisis. And finally, with the energy price cap soaring, are there gadgets that could help you save money? Lee comes with a warning with his own 'smart' thermostat.

The Hypnotist: Inspiration for High Standards
People who strive for delivering high standards often put themselves under quite a lot of pressure, driven by the instinct that things have to be done right: there is no choice, in their mind. Subconsciously, this may reflect a yearning for the approval and compliments of others: but it can result in considerable anxiety, even guilt, about not meeting those high standards. This episode explores alternative mindsets for meeting these same goals, exploring sources of inspiration, enthusiasm and creativity. It's about looking for a different framework where you can still have those high standards, but without stress.

He reflects upon some of the lessons that can be learned about governance and statecraft from the Covid pandemic. And he considers the potential privatisation of Channel 4, hoping that it can somehow once more be a disruptive channel for thinkers.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Are recession indicators flashing red?
While many nervously watch the US yield curve, which briefly reversed recently, Russ Mould of A J Bell thinks investors should also pay attention to transportation indicators such as the Dow Transportation Index. He believes the market is better at predicting recessions than economists. Explaining why the yield curve is important and why he thinks stagflation is on the cards, he believes investors should fight shy of bonds and growth stocks and lean towards raw materials and real assets.
