IEA: Budget 2018; Taxation tricks and unfunded treats
“The era of austerity is finally coming to an end”, announced Philip Hammond in his Budget Day speech. Well it certainly seemed like it, judging by the Chancellor’s policy announcements, which included a slew of new spending commitments – all with very little detail on how any of it was to be funded. There were pledges of more than £20bn in additional annual funding for the NHS by 2023, an extra £779m for social care, £1bn for the armed forces and £675m for a ‘Future High Streets’ fund, to name but a few. But with UK debt still approaching 88%, the highest level since 1966, is it fair or just to turn on the spending taps and ask the next generation to carry the burden and eventually foot the bill. So, was this an almost-Halloween Budget full of taxation tricks and unfunded treats? Joining us to give their take on yesterday’s Budget, policy changes and spending commitments is Mark Littlewood, Director General at the IEA and Kate Andrews, Associate Director at the IEA.

View From The Budget
Analysing the 2018 Budget are Professor Tim Evans, Professor of Business and Political Economy at Middlesex Business School and financial journalist and broadcaster Ed Bowsher. In conversation with Simon Rose they discuss what they feel was a heavily political Budget. What did he get right and what wrong? Is this the end of austerity? Should the Chancellor have kept back more of his unexpected windfall? How can the extra money for the NHS be most wisely spent? Will his "digital services tax" redress the balance between online and bricks and mortar retailers? Should more have been done for the environment? Should Philip Hammond give up joke-telling? All this and more in our expert analysis.

IEA: Do millennials give top marks to Marx?
This week on Live from Lord North Street, the IEA’s Digital Manager Darren Grimes sat down with the Director of FREER, Rebecca Lowe and the IEA's Editorial Manager Madeline Grant. Are millennials giving top marks to Marx - or could they be more libertarian than we think? Rebecca and Madeline put the stereotype of the millennial Marxist under the spotlight and examine where things might not be so clear cut. Finally, they look at ways free markets can craft a positive case for capitalism.

As stock market turmoil spreads across the globe, the advice is to keep calm and carry on, folks. In the latest This is Money podcast, editor Simon Lambert and host Georgie Frost discuss what's causing it, how long will it go on for and how concerned we should be. Because we're a positive bunch, we also reveal the shares that have rocketed over the last five years, some by more than 1,000 per cent. Also, we answer a reader query about state pensions - can couples inherit it from each other and how much might they get? Elsewhere, we take a look at the best way to clear your buy-to-let loan and discover how to bag a property bargain.

Siddharth Shankar says he has unashamedly exploited the potential opportunities from Brexit by founding Tail’s Trading, a company opening up British SMEs to a mammoth Asian market. He realised, not far in to an engineering degree, that he’d rather work in finance and says he made the decision to ‘jump in’ (a method he heartily recommends!). He loves jazz music, reflected here in some of his musical choices, and cites Warren Buffett as a great business role model.
