This is Money: Is the UK primed to bounce back - and what next for Scottish Mortgage?
Is the economy primed to bounce back? That might sound like a strange question when you’ve just had the news that UK GDP fell by 2.9 per cent in one month, but January’s lockdown slump was nowhere near as deep as expected. It seems that despite a tough lockdown being imposed, shops and big chunks of the economy being shut and schools being closed, the UK has adapted to restrictions better than thought when it comes to doing business. On this week’s podcast, Georgie Frost, Jayna Rana and Simon Lambert discuss the prospects for recovery and also the businesses that have pivoted and started-up over the lockdown year. While economies have suffered, stock markets have rebounded strongly – and in the case of the US and its growth star stocks, repeatedly surpassed previous record highs. That’s been good news for UK investors backing the growth story, particularly the legions of savers with money in the giant Scottish Mortgage investment trust. But a growth stock wobble in the US has sent Scottish Mortgage sliding – with the trust down 27 per cent at one point on its January peak – followed by a rapid bounce back to erase some of those losses. Should investors be worried or is it a buying opportunity – and what is the one key investing lesson that Simon says this highlights? Also on this week’s show, the mortgage that lets you fix for life – bringing potentially a 40-year fixed rate until 2061. And finally, would you buy your local pub to rescue it from the threat of closure? If the answer’s ‘yes’ then there’s some good news: Rishi Sunak wants to help you.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: If the market is in a bubble, what stage are we at?
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, asks whether markets are currently in a bubble. If they are, what are the various stages common to bubbles over the years and the centuries and what stage have we reached? For those investors concerned we ARE now in bubble territory, what are the options? And, as an aside, why do the regulations (and blame) always concentrate on short selling and not the overenthusiastic buying that drives the bubble in the first place?

Policy Matters: Congestion charging, performance-related pay and MPs’ other jobs – exploring some of the unintended consequences of policy
In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson are joined by Colin Green, Professor of Economics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Colin’s research interests cover a range of areas in applied economics and public policy, including education, the labour market, health, personnel economics, and political science. We first hear from Colin about how the pandemic has been in Norway over the last year and how this compares to the experience in the UK and in his home country of Australia. This leads into discussion of Colin’s research on the impact of the London congestion charge on traffic accidents in the city and some of the intended and unintended consequences for pollution. Next, we hear about the relationship between the election of anti-immigration politicians in Italy and the location decisions of migrants, before Colin tells us about the positive long-term impacts immigration can have on an area’s social capital, exploiting a specific migration event into Italy during the 16th Century. Colin then sheds light on why the performance-related pay element in Franz’s employment contract might not be the best thing for his health, before the programme closes with a discussion of Colin’s research on the concerning relationships between MPs’ jobs outside parliament, their involvement in law-making, and the economic value of the firms for whom they work.

The Hypnotist: A Dolphin's Decision - Security or Freedom?
Adam creates a hypnosis session designed to clarify which value is important when making a decision. Many people prioritise safety and security over freedom and adventure - which can lead to regret in some cases. This hypnosis session uses a metaphor of a dolphin captured from the ocean and put into an aquarium to show that freedom can be perceived to be dangerous or risky which can lead to limitations. Which decision will the dolphin make? Security or Freedom?
