Inside Property: Current Affairs Edition
The launch of the Private Residential Tenancy in Scotland heralds the end of no fault evictions and Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, outlines his aspirations for more devolved powers in a Draft Housing Strategy. As letting agents in England look forward to “full regulation,” where is the market heading in 2018 and was the phrase “sky high rocketing rents” ever more than a headline grabbing cliché, particularly as rents are currently rising well below inflation? We look back at the Autumn budget and offer interest rate and election predictions for the year to come. Sarah Davidson, from This Is Money and Chris Norris, Head of Policy at the NLA join Richard Blanco for a round up of all the latest issues facing property professionals. Inside Property is produced in collaboration with the National Landlords Association.

IEA: Is Sterling Devaluation the Path to Prosperity?
The Institute of Economic Affairs hosts a debate asking if economist and author John Mills has the solutions to the UK’s economic problems. At the heart of John’s plan is a proposal to lift the share of manufacturing and investment by engineering a substantial fall in the exchange rate. On the other side of the debate is the IEA’s chief economist Julian Jessop, arguing that deregulation and lower tax rates are the best way to stimulate economic growth. Both John and Julian join IEA news editor Kate Andrews for today’s podcast, as they go over the main points made during the debate, and go into further detail in areas of disagreement and consensus.

John Mills, Julian Jessop

IEA: What Is The Best Way To Measure Poverty in Britain?
What is the best way to measure poverty? Intuitively, this question might not seem necessary – surely, we know poverty when we see it. But while we can probably agree that the inhabitants of Victorian slums were in poverty, in many cases today things aren’t so clear cut. Our Chief Economist Julian Jessop examines this question in light of recent research from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, warning of rises in child and pensioner poverty.
