This is Money: What will be in the Budget (and what should be)?
Yes, it’s another Budget. On Wednesday, November 22, Philip Hammond will stand up and deliver his second Budget of the year and this is his chance to ride to the Conservatives’ rescue. After the last Budget mess, the snap election that went wrong, the unexpected rise of Corbynism, and the Brexit arguments that just won’t go away, the Chancellor will be hoping that he’s the one to get everything back on track. So what could he deliver – and what should he? From help for younger people, to stamp duty cuts, pension tinkering, building more homes and just fixing the roads, Simon Lambert, Rachel Rickard Straus and Georgie Frost take a run through what might come up and what it would mean for you. And they outline what they would like to see. The problem for the Chancellor, as he shifts the Budget to the autumn for the first time, is that there is a tension between his desire to do something and his lack of wriggle room due to Britain’s finances.

NEF: How will Brexit affect our lives?
The single market. The customs union. Making a deal with the EU or leaving on WTO terms. There’s a lot of jargon to contend with when we’re discussing the economics of Brexit. Sometimes it feels like we get so caught up in pretending we know what it all means that we forget to talk about the impact it’s going to have on people’s everyday lives. When we leave the EU, will some people lose their jobs? Will the things we buy become more expensive? Will businesses do better or worse under new trading rules? This week, Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Annie Quick, Subject Lead for Inequality at the New Economics Foundation and Sam Lowe, who leads on trade and Brexit at Friends of the Earth.

IEA: Paradise Papers, The Benefits of Tax Havens
A recent mass leak of financial documents, branded the Paradise Papers, has caused many people to call for the Govenmernt to take decisive action against tax avoidance. We’re joined by the IEA’s Research Director Dr Jamie Whyte, and Head of Financial Services Diego Zuluaga, to discuss the role of tax havens and the legal and ethical questions around tax avoidance. Interviewed by the IEA’s News Editor Kate Andrews, the pair discuss the fallout from the Paradise Papers, and whether it’s moral to minimise one’s tax burden using off-shore accounts and other structures. Finally, Diego and Jamie explore the role that off-shore funds will play in an increasingly globalised world.
