This is Moneyball: From quitting the city at 40 to football management: Mark Warburton reveals all
How do you go from life in the City to working as a football manager? That is what ex-Brentford, Rangers and Nottingham Forest manager – and former city trader - Mark Warburton did. He joins broadcaster Georgie Frost and assistant editor Lee Boyce to reveal how he made a leap from a 20-year career in London's financial world to football management at 40. He also discusses how there are no Brexit plans for English Premier League in Europe, whether the global power balance is shifting, and what this means financially for football in the UK. Meanwhile, after an exhilarating weekend of rugby – mainly for the Welsh and Scottish fans - the future of the Six Nations and indeed the sport itself appears to be at a crossroads, with potential private equity investment on the cards. And England coach Eddie Jones has vowed to get in a sports psychologist after letting a huge lead slip this weekend – are they worth hiring? Nike nails its colours to the mast with women's sport by announcing a shirt sponsorship deal for 14 nations ahead of the World Cup – and it's revealed that the England women's rugby team was paid exactly £0 for winning the Six Nations Grand Slam.

The Bigger Picture: Who is to blame for the Brexit mess?
With just a week to go until Britain COULD leave the EU, political commentator Mike Indian asks who's to blame for the Brexit mess. While asking for an extension to the leaving date, Theresa May has put up the hackles of many MPs with her latest address. He also looks at what's happened to collective responsibility, the Speaker's ability to pick and choose which precedents he invokes and why Jeremy Corbyn walked out of a meeting with the PM because Chuka Umunna was present.

This is Money: Can Britain afford to pay MORE tax? Why the tax burden has hit its highest level since 1969
With all the shenanigans in Westminster last week you could be forgiven for failing to register we had a Spring Statement at all – let alone clocked its finer points. Editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost fill you in on what you may have missed. It includes forecasts from the Office for Budgetary Responsibility on the UK economy, along with income growth, interest rates, the pound and house prices. We also have the true scale of the tax burden on families and businesses, with the overall tax take equivalent to 34.6% of Britain's economy, a level not seen since Harold Wilson was Prime Minister. Income tax receipts will rise nearly £54billion in the next five years, with steep rises forecast for National Insurance, VAT and Corporation Tax. A hike in probate 'fees' was waved through without a vote or debate in parliament by classifying it as a fee not a tax – but the ONS is now calling it a tax. The OBR also reveals that two flagship savings schemes have not been anywhere near as popular as planned, while boilers are out – as are feed-in tariffs from solar panels.

NEF: How to shockproof the economy?
It’s hard to listen to the news at the moment without hearing some kind of warning about economy. Nearly all of those warnings focus on one thing – Brexit. It’s true that lots of people think Brexit is risky – but in the clamour to define what Brexit means, could we be blindsided by something else? Obviously it’s difficult to predict exactly how and when another shock to the economy might happen. But is there more we could be doing to get the economy ready for whatever might be around the corner? Guest host Hanna Wheatley is joined by NEF’s Head of Economics Alfie Stirling and Senior Economist Sarah Arnold.
