This Is Money: Why is food inflation so high and when will it stop?
Inflation is theoretically running out of steam but there's one essential that's still gloing up in price rapidly: food. Even as energy prices and other recent highly inflationary items run out of steam, the cost of food seems to show no let up - with reports reporting inflation-busting rises. What is going on here? How much have food prices risen, why have they gone up so much, are supermarkets or brand-name makers profiteering, and will costs ever come back down? Georgie Frost, Angharad Carrick and Simon Lambert, delve into food prices on this week's episode - and look at any ways you could save money. Plus, mortgage rates are falling while the base rate is going up: why is that and what happens next? Should you invest in a VCT, not just for the juicy tax breaks but also for the investment opportunities on offer? And finally, we met the founders of Seatfrog to find out how they are helping passengers buy up unused first-class seats on trains at bargain prices and their plans for making train ticket-buying better.

The Bigger Picture: Macron & pensions, what role for UK unions & Sunak's reshuffle
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University explains to Simon Rose why, if Emmanuel Macron can't raise France's retirement age, Europe's fiscal union could be doomed. He ponders what the role is now for the UK's trade unions in a new age of industrial action. And he marvels at the enormous yawn factor of Rishi Sunak's cabinet reshuffle. With Volodymyr Zelensky's UK visit showing up our own politicians, he wonders why we no longer seem to have great Parliamentarians.

The Business of Film: Puss In Boots - The Last Wish, Knock At The Cabin & The Whale
James Cameron-Wilson takes Simon Rose through the UK box office numbers, up 14% on the previous week. #1 is Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, the belated sequel pushing Avatar 2 into second place. James found it migraine-inducing. M Night Shyamalan's Knock At The Cabin is #3 but James found it mad and daft in equal measure. However, he thought Darren Aronofsky's The Whale at #5 one of the best films of the last 12 months. Starring Brendan Fraser, it's a claustrophobic tale of an immensely large teacher approaching the end of his life and has received many nominations.

Thought for the Week: Solving the AI Challenge to Wealth, Control and Intelligence
The huge take-up of ChatGPT over recent weeks has brought the challenge of Artificial Intelligence into sharp relief. As the Chief Executive of its creator, OpenAI, said in one of his blogs, 'Artificial Intelligence will bring unimaginable wealth but, unless something changes, most of us will get none of it. We need a radical solution'. Conventional wisdom sees Universal Basic Income as the way through this dilemma, but this will only bring us more state intermediation and human subservience. We can put forward a better solution, by enabling all to share in the wealth that technology brings and to play their part in its future governance.

The Hypnotist: Hypnosis for Technology Addiction
Time is the scarce resource in human lives, and technology in its various forms swallows a lot of it for many of us. When its absorption into our lives becomes almost a habit or an addiction, it can cause us to miss opportunities and it can impact our character and even our identity. Whether it's gaming, social media or other online activity that turns you on, the emotional appeal is generally that instant gratification which pulls us away from experiencing real life and relationships. If you're concerned about being drawn into this trap of gaming and virtual experience, this episode could help you restore balance into your life.
