Thought for the Week: Transforming Leadership
As Liz Truss takes the hot seat in British politics, we explain why political leaders must embrace disintermediation and servant leadership as the way forward to a better world. Arrogance is so often the Achilles heel of leaders, and genuine humility is hard to detect. So, as the new Prime Minister takes the reins in 10 Downing St, we call for a proper understanding of servant leadership and explain why disintermediation is critical to effective delivery, the ability for all to share both wealth and opportunity, and a legacy of continuing progress for the future.

This Is Money: The cost of living crisis cutbacks that could harm your long-term wealth
Belts are already being tightened but as bills head even higher more people will look to save where they can. But are there some things that you should avoid doing or cutting back on at all costs? Campaigns to get people not to pay their bills have obvious flaws, but what about only paying for the energy you use, diverting your pension saving elsewhere or cutting back on ditching saving or investing. Some are at breaking point and will have little choice but to do some of these things, but what about those who are still heading off on holidays, going ou for dinner and drinks, or getting takeways in - should they hammer down on discretionary spending before stopping saving? In his This Is Money column last week, Simon Lambert came up with his five false economies to avoid, but was he right to pick them? Simon, Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce discuss them in this episode. Also, are buy-to-let landlords all bad or a crucial part of the property market, will an electric car still save you money after the energy price cap hike, and how high will savings rates go — as the best buys come in thick and fast.

Motley Fool Money: YouTube’s Rocky Road to the Top (28/8)
Google’s acquisition of YouTube is now remembered as one of the most successful tech acquisitions ever, but that result was far from obvious in 2006. Bloomberg reporter Mark Bergen is the author of the upcoming book “Like, Comment, Subscribe. Inside YouTube’s Chaotic Rise to World Domination.” Dylan Lewis caught up with Bergen to talk about YouTube’s “Forrest Gump-like” tendency to be a part of world-changing events, the platform’s complicated relationship with its creator base, one missed opportunity around kids and education, and the acquisition of YouTube, and its early days at Google. Stocks mentioned: GOOG, GOOGL, META. Host - Dylan Lewis; Guest - Mark Bergen

The Hypnotist: Public Speaking Confidence
Following the result of the leadership ballot, there'll be much need for public speaking. Politicians often appear to brim with confidence, but anyone who's stood in front of a microphone knows that it doesn't come easily. The higher the stakes, the more anxiety rises - and yet so often the only way of losing is by not participating. Adam Cox introduces that different perspective into this episode in order to help build more confidence for those in the spotlight.
