The Bigger Picture

The Bigger Picture: Qualifications in a complex economy, Brexit in danger & Ukraine six months on
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at the importance of qualifications in an increasingly complex economy, so different from that of students' parents' generation and earlier. He discusses why relatively little advantage has so far been taken of the UK leaving the EU and remarks that big changes often come out of a time of crisis. And, six months on, he looks Ukraine and how Russia has lost ground since mid-March, wiping out its military's high reputation with the conflict coming more to resemble WW1's trench warfare.

The Business of Film: Fisherman's Friends 2, The Saphead & Official Competition
James Cameron-Wilson takes us through the UK box office chart, still led by Nope. Fisherman's Friends: One And All, James found a frequently funny and superior sequel but it only managed #6 with £660,000. For his Blu-Ray of the week he chose the 1920 silent The Saphead, a romantic tragedy with Buster Keaton's first feature appearance and a host of wonderful extras. On in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema, James loved the thought-provoking, film-related comedy Official Competition with Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Why Jackson Hole is vital this year
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor tells Simon Rose why the Jackson Hole central bank symposium in Wyoming is so important this year and what we might expect Fed Chair Jay Powell to say. With the severity of inflation a major driver of markets, we can expect them to be jittery for some time. In the UK, the new price cap will have a big effect on the CPI numbers.

Thought for the Week: Quality of life for all is the challenge

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Quality of life for all is the challenge
The ONS reports the sharpest fall in real wages since the financial crash, but is the pain of soaring inflation shared by all? The contrast between stock market reaction so far this year and that which followed the oil price shock in the 1970s suggests that there is little comparison with those days: and yet the massive increase in fossil fuel and food prices driven by Putin's war in Ukraine is every bit as severe as then. So why, notwithstanding the fact that economic recession is expected, are stock markets so sanguine about the conditions facing us today? It has all to do with the very different impact felt by different segments of society as a result of chronic polarisation of wealth, and it explains why we need to move to a more egalitarian form of capitalism.

This Is Money: Inflation hits double digits for the first time since 1982: How does today compare to 40 years ago?
Inflation is up again with CPI now measured at 10.1%, the highest since February 1982, when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister. How does this bout of inflation compare to then? Lee Boyce, Helen Crane and Georgie Frost discuss the higher than forecast inflation rate and what is driving it. With that rate of inflation soaring, a majority of economists believe another 0.5% increase in base rate is on the cards next month. But what would a base rate of 3%, 5% or 7% do to mortgage rates and property prices? Britons are estimated to have billions 'lost' in pension, investment and bank accounts – how do you go about tracking it down? And, with thousands of students opening their A Level results this week, Lee reveals how he has already built a £10,000 investment pot for his three-year-old, in case she decides to go into further education.
