The Bigger Picture: Tensions in Europe, the roots and reality of UK sleaze & inside the care crisis
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at the mounting tensions in Central and Eastern Europe and asks what's going on and explains why Germany is so beholden to Putin's Russia. Delving into the roots and reality of sleaze in British politics, he wonders if we should have amateur or professional politicians. And he admires a TV programme in which Ed Balls looks at the care system, in a crisis towards which the country seems to be in denial.

This Is Money: The energy saving battle: Which household tasks use more?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: US inflation at a 30-year high & oil capex at a multi-year low

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: US inflation at a 30-year high & oil capex at a multi-year low
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, looks behind the 30-year-high numbers for US inflation. CPI is 6.2% but the producer price index is 8.6% with intermediate producer prices up 25% and raw materials climbing 57% year on year. While high energy prices are responsible for some of that, he also points out that the capital investment of the oil majors is, despite the high oil price, at around a 20-year low. He explains the reason behind this (is oil the new tobacco?) but wonders if oil should be written off as an investment just yet.
