This Is Money: Are your energy bills about to soar? Latest on the Ofgem price cap and how to beat imminent rises
From October, millions of households can expect to pay even more on their energy bills. Ofgem is raising the energy price cap for the second time in a year, due to rising wholesale costs. The cap is now at a record high and it means those who are on a standard variable tariff, or a prepayment meter, could be facing hundreds of pounds added to their annual bills. Lee Boyce, Grace Gausden and Georgie Frost take a look at the price cap, what it means and how to potentially beat it. When it comes to future technology, will we soon see the death of the landline to be replaced by phone calls over wi-fi? Additionally, with growing numbers of households – especiall rural ones – turning to satellite broadband, we explain how it works and the potential costs. When it comes to current accounts, we tend to stay loyal. But those who have switched, Starling Bank and Virgin Money have been the most popular destinations. It's a tale of two different switching mentalities – those who want branches and bribes, and those who simply want a sleek app and good customer service. Lastly, Grace on the Case launched 10 months ago. In that time, our senior reporter Grace Gausden has managed to claw back a total of nearly £206,000 for readers. She takes a look back at some of her most satisfying wins and her passion for helping This is Money readers achieve a fair result from a variety of different firms.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Is the BoE got right on inflation and calls for UK institutions to invest in infrastructure
Laith Khalaf, head of investment analysis at A J Bell, explains why the Bank of England is not about to raise interest rates, despite its forecasts of inflation way about the 2% target. He warns that investors should make sure, however, that they are prepared for higher interest rates. And, in the light of the Prime Minister and Chancellor calling for the institutions to invest in long-term UK projects, he considers why that isn't already happening and what would need to change to make it tempting for them to do so.

The Bigger Picture: Authoritarianism on the rise, the BoE's dilemma & the new era of UK security policy
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University considers why the authoritarianism is on the rise around the world, even in the UK; is it something we should be concerned about? With debt at such levels, he discusses why the Bank of England under Andrew Bailey is caught between a rock and a hard place and so irritated by the House of Lords economic affairs committee. And, with HMS Queen Elizabeth heading a carrier strike group visiting 40 countries, he explains why the UK is heading into a new era of security policy.
