This is Money: Paying More With Less
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio Podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. We’ve had a few stats to digest this week with inflation continuing to rise, now up 1.8%, whilst employment remains at record highs according to the ONS. Behind the figures though we’re hearing much of this is based on freelance and zero-hours work with both salaries and interest rates failing to keep pace with the cost of living. With all this spelling disaster for savers there’s been a few interesting additions to Money Mail’s Best Buy table this week. Joining Georgie Frost to go through the options is Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus. Plus, we take a look at the new rate hikes threatening the future of small businesses and the costs of bereavement.

Donald Trump attacks the media in a bizarre solo press conference
Donald Trump used his first solo news conference at the White House to air his grievances with the media. In a boisterous and often bizarre session, he fired off numerous broadsides at the media as he skipped from topic to topic in what critics saw as an attempt to deflect attention from his alleged ties to Russia. And on this side of the pond, Former Prime Minister Tony Blair is expected to announce his "mission" to persuade Britons to "rise up" and change their minds on Brexit, in a speech later today. For his thoughts on these stories, Share Radio Morning's Georgie Frost was joined by Billy Bambrough, Editor of economics and business website Verdict.co.uk.
