NEF: Is the economy damaging our mental health?
In the UK, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. And according to the latest stats, one in eight young people have a mental health problem. One big problem is access to treatment. Mental health services are underfunded, leaving many people stuck on waiting lists. But what are the wider social and economic factors that are causing poor mental health in the first place? Is the economy itself damaging our mental health? Is modern life making us sick? Ayeisha Thomas-Smith talks to Hana Riaz, who is researching the impact of gentrification on mental health, NEF organiser Becki Winson, and our wellbeing researcher Annie Quick.

Business of Film: Green Book
James Cameron-Wilson casts his eye over the UK box office which has its first decent hit of 2019 with new #1 How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Green Book, a big awards contender, is in at #2 with the derivative Escape Room clocking in at #4. James is mystified, though, as to why Can You Ever Forgive Me?, starring Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, another hot pick for awards glory, should only have turned up at #8 in the charts. James also takes a look at the home release of A Star Is Born, one of his favourite films of 2018, with the DVD packed full of worthwhile extras.

This is Money: How to start investing or become a smarter investor
Investing has proven to be the best way to beat inflation and grow your wealth over the long-term, but how do you get started? And if you do already invest but feel you’ve lost track of your goals or ended up with a jumble of investments, how can you improve things? In this second edition of a two-part podcast special on saving and investing, Simon Lambert and Georgie Frost dive into how to be a smarter investor. They bust the jargon and look at why people should invest, how to get started, what investments you can choose and how to find the right ones for you. Simon discusses his experience of investing, what he got right along the way and importantly the things he got wrong. But why should you invest? Well, between 1900 and 2017 owning UK shares would have delivered an average return of 5.5 per cent, beating cash savings at 1 per cent and property at 1.8 per cent, according to the respected Credit Suisse Investment Yearbook. There’s no guarantee that history will be repeated, but companies should always have the ability to put money to productive use and reward investors with rising share prices off the back of their profits, dividend payouts, or interest on bonds.
