This is Money: Was that a good Budget – and is austerity really over?
Is austerity really coming to an end? And are the rich getting richer thanks to the Government? In the This is Money podcast this week, editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost analyse the 2018 Budget. Money for the NHS, little extras for schools, cash for roads, help for the High Street and the baby rabbit in the hat - pulling the rise in the basic and higher rate tax thresholds to £12,500 and £50,000, respectively, a year earlier than promised. We also talk about what a no Brexit deal means for interest rates? We heard from the Bank of England this week about the likely impact such a scenario could have on interest rates and how quickly they will go up – or not. Despite sticking this week to 0.75%, the decision came with a few notes of warning – largely that it was based on a 'smooth transition' for Brexit. And finally, we report on the latest in our 'stop the private parking sharks' campaign - how the good people of Essex town Basildon have taken to the streets to protest about one firm running a car park and dishing out charges.

Modern Mindset: The Motivation Myth
Adam talks to IEMT trainer and founder of Interesting Talks (the largest Meetup Group in London) Matt Kendall. They discuss the latest technology in dealing with trauma and anxiety and also explore the perils of the personal development industry. They highlight that many people drawn to personal development seminars are often vulnerable people with mental health issues prompted to sign up for expensive courses. They question whether the industry actually solves problems or just perpetuates a myth of success and accomplishments for financial gain.
