This Is Money: What does the tax-cutting mini-Budget mean for you and the UK?
Britain's new Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng delivered a blistering mini-Budget this week that was anything that small. A wave of tax cuts were unleashed. Some had been heavily trailed, such as spiking the National Insurance hike and a stamp duty reduction, but there were also two rabbits out of the hat: a cut in basic rate income tax to 19p from April and abolishing the 45p income tax rate. Those tax cuts joined a wave of spending commitments, most notably the huge energy price guarantee bailout for Britain's households and businesses. Paul Johnson, of the IFS, said: 'Mr Kwarteng is not just gambling on a new strategy, he is betting the house'. Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert discuss what the going for growth mini-Budget means for people, how much they may save in tax, and whether it will work or cause the UK economy even more problems down the line. One thing was clear in the aftermath: markets didn't like the break from the orthodoxy that they saw, and the pound tumbled below $1.10 while UK gilt yields jumped. But how much does that have to do with the mini-Budget and how much does it have to do with the Bank of England's rate decision that delivered a bumper rise of 0.5%, which was still considered small next to the US Federal Reserve's 0.75% bazooka? And finally, we've heard lots of 'glass half-empty' verdicts on our current economic situation but what is the 'glass half-full' one? Simon has a crack.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Interest rate decisions from the Fed and the BoE
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor discusses with Simon Rose the Fed's hiking of interest rates by 75 basis points, with indications they have further to go. The move strengthened the dollar still further. In the UK, the Bank of England opted for a 50 basis point rise, rather than 75 (the highest level since 2008), with the MPC split over the decision. With the pound continuing to weaken, she also discusses why former ratesetter Danny Blanchflower has said investors should short sterling.

The Bigger Picture: What can we expect of the PM, Energy and Russia & Reflections on the late Queen.
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University discusses what we might expect from Liz Truss as Prime Minister. He points out how long it has been since the Government (or Opposition) had a clear strategy. He also wonders where the Russian economy is heading now that Europe appears to be weaning itself off the country's energy. And he reflects on the late Queen and her funeral, surprising himself with the realisation that her death appears to have taught many of us something about ourselves.

The Business of Film: Both Sides of the Blade, Identification of a Woman & I Came By - 22 Sep 22
James Cameron-Wilson laments a further decline in the UK box office, off another 31%. See How They Run is still #1 with Bowie doc Moonage Daydream at #10. The worthwhile but uncomfortable drama Both Sides of the Blade with Juliette Binoche only managed #48. Cleaned up for a Blu-Ray release is Antonioni's 1982 provocative arthouse film Identification of a Woman. James was pleasantly surprised by I Came By, an unsettling dystopian view of Britain today with George Mackay and Hugh Bonneville, which is on Netflix.
