This is Money: Would you challenge a will? Why inheritance disputes are on the rise
A will may be considered the expression of someone’s last wishes, but more of them are being challenged. High property prices and increasingly complicated families are being blamed for the rise in disputes, but would you challenge someone’s will? In this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost dive into why inheritance rows are more commonplace and how difficult it is to try to overturn a will. Also this week, alongside some money-saving tips for millennials a heated debate kicks off about buying flat whites vs saving for homes at a time when house prices are sky high compared to ages. Simon reveals his lessons from holding Lloyds shares all the way up, all the way down and then all the time that they have bumped along since the financial crisis. And we dig into the case of a car park prang that led to countless phone calls from ambulance chasers – and how this manages to happen.

The Bigger Picture: The Independent Group and what it might mean for British politics
Political commentator Mike Indian, author of The Groucho Tendency blog, looks at the formation of The Independent Group, with 8 ex-Labour and 3 ex-Conservative MPs to date. What do they stand for? And against? Will there be more defections? Could they change the face of British politics or is it too early to say? What might their arrival on the scene mean for the Brexit process, with the clock ticking down and even Jean-Claude Juncker confessing to "Brexit fatigue"?

Gadgets & Gizmos: Space station gravity
Steve Caplin looks at Samsung's new phones, including one far more expensive even than Apple's top of the range model. He also laments the loss of a project aiming to send people to Mars, though there's another planning a space station with gravity. For those looking for something new in dating, try an app that matches the contents of your fridges. Or perhaps a peanut butter pump is what you need. Or a cocktail-maker using capsules from coffee machine makers Keurig.

Share Interview: The legal side of blockchain and smart contracts
The legal process could be about to change dramatically if blockchain technology is used in the creation of so-called disintermediated smart contracts, with a decentralised ledger that can be seen by all. It's a brave new world for lawyers but also an exciting one, as explained by Jacqueline Watts, Senior Associate Solicitor at A City Law Firm. With the legal system based on precedent, how will things develop where there is no precedent?

New Economics Foundation

NEF: Public Ownership 2.0
Public ownership is back on the agenda. Opinion polls show high levels of support for taking all kinds of things back into public hands, from the railways to water to energy, and the Labour party is committed to a vast expansion of public ownership. But if privatisation has failed, what kind of public ownership should replace it? As the critics of nationalisation are quick to say, British Rail wasn’t that great. What should be done differently this time? If these services were nationalised, would the state even know how to run them? And are there other ways of putting them back in public hands? Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Cat Hobbs, director of We Own It campaign, Hilary Wainwright, co-editor of Red Pepper magazine and fellow of the Transnational Institute, and Sahil Dutta, lecturer in political economy at Goldsmiths University.

IEA: How compatible is democracy with free market progress?
Brexit has revitalized debates about democracy. Restoring democracy and sovereignty can come risk for those strongly committed to free markets — that our fellow citizens might choose another path, perhaps even one that could lead to socialist and freedom-hindering policies. But is that a risk we must take? In a free society, what individual rights should never be infringed on? What should be voted on? And is there a place for technocratic decision-making? In a new paper, the Director of the IEA’s FREER initiative, Rebecca Lowe, argues that one clear answer to ‘improving’ democracy here in the UK would be to institute a proper focus on local decision-making — something that, she says, has been overlooked in past years. Rebecca joins the IEA's Darren Grimes to discuss, alongside Adam Bartha, the Director of EPICENTER, the European Policy Information Center.
