The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: How are markets affected by mid-term PMs?
Russ Mould of A J Bell discusses with Simon Rose how markets have reacted to the resignation of Boris Johnson as PM, reflecting that no PLC board could behave as some politicians have done. He has looked at what difference it makes to shares when the Prime Minister is changed mid-term, finding that it makes little difference in the short term. Over a longer period, the economy is likely to have more of an effect although government policy – interventionist or not? – may yet be important. One thing is sure, this uncertainty won't encourage the overseas investors on whom the UK is so dependent.

The Business of Film: Minions – The Rise of Gru, The Man From Toronto & Blasted

The Business of Film: Minions – The Rise of Gru, The Man From Toronto & Blasted
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the UK box office, where Minions: The Rise of Gru enters at #1. Disliking it intensely and querying the BBFC's "U" certificate, he calls it "cultural rat poison". With Elvis, Top Gun and Jurassic World holding well, James turned to Netflix for filmic enlightenment. But he found the Kevin Hart/Woody Harrelson comedy The Man From Toronto dreadful and was even more dispirited by Norwegian sci-fi comedy Blasted. He only managed to cheer himself by watching Avatar ahead of this year's belated sequel, finding it vastly better than he remembered.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Amazon's e-bikes, biofuel, sand batteries & AR contact lenses
Share Radio's technology editor, Steve Caplin, talks to Simon Rose about Amazon's new e-cargo bikes and a new more efficient biofuel. Renewable energy storage takes a leap forward with sand batteries, while pyramids could be the way forward for solar cells. AR glasses may not be needed; there could be AR contact lenses instead while NASA want to send mini swimming robots to moons of Jupiter and Saturn. Steve admires a coal-powered motorbike and discusses the latest development in 3D printed wood.

The Bigger Picture: Boris Johnson's Resignation
Political commentator Mike Indian talked to Simon Rose at the very moment Boris Johnson announced his resignation as Prime Minister. Coping adeptly with the breaking news, Mike explained why Pincher was the straw that broke the camel's back but worried how any major government moves could be made by a caretaker PM. He considers the possibility of a major political realignment, wondering about the likelihood of Johnson retiring quietly. With a summer of leadership contests ahead, he reflects that – unlike many other nations - the UK is still a functioning democracy.

Thought for the Week: Wanted - Systemic Commitment for Inter-generational Rebalancing
Are rich people who come from poverty more likely to be sympathetic to others in poverty because they understand their lives? Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba, clearly isn't: here he is speaking in 2014 'You are poor because you have no ambition'. And a new study confirms that those who make the journey from rags to riches are more likely to pull the ladder up behind them. It goes to show that, if we want a fair and just society where young people have not only the life skills but also some resources to achieve their potential as an adult, we must build the strategy into the structure of our economic governance: much as public health and addressing climate change are accepted by an all-party consensus.

This Is Money: How to battle unfair charges from private parking firms… and win
In recent times, private parking firms have come under scrutiny from motoring organisations, the Government… and This is Money. Many motorists will have received a dreaded charge in the post and in some cases, unjustifiably so. If that’s you, it’s time to fight back. Georgie Frost, Simon Lambert and Lee Boyce take a look at whether private parking firms are playing fair. It comes as Lee received a third private parking charge in the post in four years, and for the third time appealed and had it magically cancelled. He explains his case and questions how he was issued the charge despite paying the correct amount and displaying the paid-for ticket in the windscreen. Also, is it fair to remove parking machines and replace them with apps? Halifax has been embroiled in a Twitter storm this week when it comes to pronouns and its bank branches – but what about the move to reduce new build deposits from 10% to 5%? Is it good news for first-time buyers? The energy price cap is set to surge to around £3,000 in October. Is it wise to try and find a fix with your supplier? Also, Simon explains why five FTSE-100 firms have seen their share price fall more than 40% since the start of the year, including Ocado and Royal Mail. And lastly, This is Money business doctor Dave Fishwick answers the question on many small business owner’s lips: how do I pass on price increases without annoying the loyal customer base?

The Hypnotist: The Bathtub of Money
It's not unusual to associate people who are financially successful with character flaws - perhaps a ruthless personality, perhaps a focus on the 'self': this can result in irrational spending when good fortune appears in order to return to one's perceived former state of equilibrium. This episode uses concepts of hypnotic wealth to help come to terms with this challenge.
