This is Money: Would you pay more tax to save the NHS?
The National Health Service is 70 years old this year and most of us are proud of the British institution, leaning on it in our times of need. However, we’re living longer with more complex problems and the service keeps crying out that it needs more money. Where does it come from? Do we make cost-cuttings or plough lots of money in, do we increase income tax, make the rich pay, or introduce a new special ring-fenced tax? Theresa May announced plans for £20.5billion-a-year cash boost – but was a little short on the detail. She hinted at tax rises and mentioned a ‘Brexit dividend’. This is Money editor Simon Lambert, along with consumer affairs editor Lee Boyce and presenter Georgie Frost look at ways to fix the NHS in the latest podcast.

IEA: Approaches to Migration
Migration matters. It has risen to near the top of concerns expressed in opinion polls in the UK and across Europe. For many politicians, the EU referendum result was a clear instruction from the British people that they wanted to reduce immigration levels. But is it all as clear cut as that? Joining us today are Daniel Pryor, Head of Programmes at the Adam Smith Institute, and Kristian Niemietz, Head of Health and Welfare at the Institute of Economic Affairs. Interviewed by Digital Officer Madeline Grant, Daniel and Kristian examine how people in Britain really feel about migration and where the nuances lie. They discuss the economic benefits of immigration – as well as its impact on culture and social cohesion.

Policy Matters: The UK labour market for young workers
In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson are joined by Professor Paul Gregg from the University of Bath to consider the prospects for today’s young people leaving education and entering the labour market. We hear a lot in the news about the job market challenges facing young people; and yet employment rates are at record levels, recent generations are the most educated ever with more and more people going to University and then enjoying a graduate wage premium – so what’s the problem? Paul provides an insight into how the economy has been changing over the last decade or so, the ways in which the recession following the 2007/8 financial crisis was unlike anything we’ve had before, and how young people have suffered the most. Matt and Franz then discuss with Paul the ways in which the challenges for policy are different now to what’s often been the case in the past, and consider what government policy can do to improve the prospects for young people today.

He also considers how culture wars are replacing class wars and what this might mean for British politics and the debate over legalisation of cannabis.
