The Bigger Picture: Liz Truss's first month as PM, Europe and China & Is Keir Starmer ready for government?
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University assesses Liz Truss's first month in office and wonders if the era of the Magic Money Tree is coming to an end. He believes that the Bank of England, which has not performed well since the Financial Crisis, deserves greater scrutiny or it is in danger of sidelining itself. He considers how Europe is pivoting away from China and worries that China may become yet more authoritarian. And, while Labour is riding high in the polls, he believes Keir Starmer has a lot of work to do to make Middle England comfortable with him.

The Business of Film: Smile, Blonde & the top 10 horror films of all time
James Cameron-Wilson reviews horror film Smile at #1 in the UK box office chart, which he found overlong, clichéd and boring, despite a strong central role. He applauded Prima Facie which has now taken over £5m, the first event movie to do so. Despite its long length, he found Blonde, telling a fictionalised life of Marilyn Monroe, to be remarkabe, with Spanish-speaking actress Ana de Armas perhaps the best female performance of the year.

This is Money

This Is Money: What's happening to the economy, mortgage deals and the pound?
It has been an incredibly turbulent week for the UK economy as the Bank of England stepped in to protect pension funds, the pound hit a record low against the dollar before rebounding and lenders pulled mortgage deals to re-price them at far higher rates. Georgie Frost, Simon Lambert and Lee Boyce tackle what has been a truly remarkable one in the world of personal finance with a message of: don't panic. So, is the UK economy in crisis… again? How much is the Chancellor's 'mini' Budget to blame? And what can the Government do now? Simon gives an economics 101 on why the pound fell and why the Bank of England stepped in, seemingly with a u-turn on plans for quantitative tightening. What is happening to mortgages? With lenders pulling deals and replacing them with higher rates, how will that impact first-time buyers, those looking to remortgage and the property market in general? Will base rate continue to head higher and what does that mean? And a chink of light for savers: this week, NS&I boosted Premium Bonds, while savings rates continue to race higher.

Motley Fool Money: Morgan Housel on Inflation, Incentives, and Investing through Bear Markets (24/3)
“No one's success is proven until they've survived a calamity.” You can’t join the NBA with a few good shots, but you can join the ranks of “great” investors. Luck and skill are much harder to separate in the financial world and making that distinction can take a few decades. Chris Hill talked with best-selling author Morgan Housel in front of a live audience about why inflation is so personal and variable, Elon Musk’s best product (hint: it’s not a car), the power of incentives, the secret to 99% of Warren Buffet’s success, and investing through bear markets. Companies mentioned: BRK.A, BRK.B, HOOD, TSLA. Host - Chris Hill; Guest - Morgan Housel

This episode uses the 'rewind technique' to encourage thinking about the future as opposed to imagining undesirable things. While medical treatment is rarely enjoyable, it can be associated with positive thoughts, giving the brain the opportunity to go for a better alternative.
