The Hypnotist: Confident Around Pigeons
Here's a way of recalling situations where you felt most resourceful to deal with current situations which create fear and anxiety. Adam Cox works with someone whose resourceful memory was from a challenging sailing experience, but who now gets spooked by pigeons: he shows how to break the connection between stimulus and its emotional response by compounding two hypnotic techniques, one of which is described as 'anchoring'.

The Bigger Picture: Changing EU/non-EU immigration, the disaster the inefficient UK state is creating & EU deflation
Professor Tim Evans is fascinated by new figures showing how, in many sectors, non-EU immigrants are now outnumbering workers from the EU. He laments the way in which the inefficiencies of the UK state are piling up disastrous problems ahead that no UK politicians appear prepared to discuss, let alone tackle. And he looks at the EU, which is trying to battle inflation while it is deflation and a chilling recession that lie ahead instead.

The Business of Film: Transformers – Rise of the Beasts, War Pony, Flamin' Hot & Glenda Jackson
James Cameron-Wilson takes Simon Rose through the UK box office chart, down 35%, thanks to the hot weather. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is #2 but the 7th in the series didn't impress James, apart from its intriguing 1990s locations. He was more taken by War Pony, a cinema verité look at growing up as Native Americans though it concentrated more on atmosphere than story. On Disney+, Eva Longoria directed the true story of the creation of the Cheetos snack. A little man made good tale, he found it cheesy and clichéd. And James also pays tribute to the actress, and former MP, Glenda Jackson.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Finding compounding companies
Neil Shah of Edison Group explains to Simon Rose that, as Albert Einstein remarked, compound interest is the eighth Wonder of the World. He discusses two companies that exhibit the same characterics. Games Workshop, with its niche Warhammer figurines has international scalability and over the long term produces a sustained return on equity while DiscoverIE has transformed itself and is another self-sustaining business with free cash flow generation. Compared to their peers, both look to be at a discount and they could be good "buy and forget" investments.

Thought for the Week: Understanding Entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurial activity is the throbbing heart of business and economic growth, but Evelyn Partners have discovered that 40% of business owners are planning to exit within the next year faced by the spectre of a massive rise in Capital Gains Tax if Labour wins next year's General Election. It's therefore critically important that the Shadow Chancellor, Rachel Reeves builds a full understanding of the dynamics of entrepreneurial endeavour and the deep level of commitment and risk shouldered by those seeking to build long-term businesses.

This Is Money: Money for nothing: Is universal basic income a good idea?
Universal basic income is a controversial idea and not just because it's money for nothing. Paying everyone a set amount every month as a baseline level of income has intrigued economists and central bank geeks for years. Supporters say it has the power to improve physical and mental health and the economy and society, but critics say it's the start of a slippery slope to state dependency and control. A new proposed trial for 30 people in the UK to get £1,600 a month has put the topic back on the agenda. So — is universal basic income a good or bad idea? Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert discuss it on this episode. Also — why aren't our energy bills lower if wholesale prices have plummeted? What can you do if you are caught in the mortgage storm? And finally, which UK shares have done best and worst so far this year?
