IEA: The Future of Financial Services Post-Brexit
Today we’re joined by the IEA’s Research Director Dr Jamie Whyte, and Catherine McBride, Senior Economist in the IEA’s International Trade and Competition Unit, who analyse the future of Britain’s financial services post-Brexit. Interviewed by the IEA’s Digital Officer Madeline Grant, the pair discuss to what extent Brexit will actually effect the vibrancy of Britain’s financial services, and what opportunities lie outside of European Union for the finance industries. Catherine and Jamie give particular focus to the fear-mongering, perpetuated by certain camps, around the future of financial services, arguing that the EU’s regulatory fixations have held the City of London back for years, and made it significantly harder for genuine competitors to enter the market.

Share Politics: Cracking down on online VAT fraud
Mel Stride, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, talks to Share Radio's Simon Rose about the Government's latest initiative to crack down on online sellers trying to evade VAT, particularly those based overseas. VAT is the third-largest source of revenue for the government after income tax and National Insurance and, as the minister explains, the Government is determined that the playing field should be level with bricks-and-mortar retailers and that those owing tax are not able to escape paying.

This is Money: Should people cash in on their homes to enjoy life or help their kids?
As a generation retires with more money in their houses than the bank, this question will only become more pressing. We revealed how a new wave of retirement interest-only mortgages could be about to emerge. Homeowners could use one to have a more comfortable retirement, clear some debt, or hand the kids or grandkids an early inheritance – perhaps to buy a home for their own young family. Is that a good idea or a recipe for disaster – and how did we even end up here? In a conversation that tracks all the way back to the mortgage boom of the Thatcher years, Simon Lambert, Rachel Rickard Straus and Georgie Frost dive into the homes as a cash machine question on this week’s podcast.
