This Is Money: Have you got financial confidence - and is it the key to getting wealthier?
Do you feel financially confident? When it comes to budgeting, saving, investing, and building your pension, are you clueless, comfortable, or cracking on? A piece of research this week by Moneybox claimed that being financially confident could add £67,000 to your lifetime wealth – on average those with confidence were worth £145,000 on average, compared to £78,000 for the unconfident. But what does being financially confident actually mean and how can you get there? Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look at how to boost your financial confidence and whether the tips to do so could work. Plus, a week into a new government and with a planned pensions review looming, the team look at what Labour could mean for our retirement savings. Meanwhile, investors seem to be cheering Labour taking charge and this week investment giant BlackRock flagged Britain’s ‘relative political stability’ and cheap stock market, so does that mean good future returns? Investing a large sum was on the mind of a reader who asked This is Money an unusual question: I’m inheriting £10 million, should I set up an investment trust? So, what is the answer to that? And finally, a new report has revealed Britain’s best places for customer service – did your favourite make the list?

The Hypnotist: Hypnosis for a Healthy Relationship with Alcohol
If alcohol is a need, a compulsion, then it easily turns into an addiction. That can turn into arguments, embarrassment and inappropriate behaviour. But if it's a choice, it's possible to build a more healthy relationship with alcohol. Adam Cox invites you to explore regression to a point when you were without alcohol, and move towards it being that matter of choice, not necessity.

The Business of Film: A Quiet Place – Day One, Kinds of Kindness & Beverly Hills Cop – Axel F

The Business of Film: A Quiet Place – Day One, Kinds of Kindness & Beverly Hills Cop – Axel F
Cineworld plans to close 25% of its cinemas and James Cameron-Wilson says box office is down 26%, though Inside Out 2 is riding high with £40.1m, making it the biggest hit of 2024. Prequel A Quiet Place: Day One is #2 but, while accomplished and watchable, it doesn't have the coiled tension of the first two films. Despite loving films of Yorgos Lanthimos like The Favourite and Poor Things, James was not enamoued of Kinds of Kindness, an anthology movie with Emma Stone which is weird without being wonderful and a case of the emperor's new clothes, with no narrative cohesion. 40 years on, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, out on Netflix, creaks in all the wrong places with Eddie Murphy looking the same but with his manic energy diminished. So by the numbers, it's not worth your time.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Flying cars, butter made from air & uncannily recreating old stars' voices
Steve Caplin explains how Elon Musk will be destroying the International Space Station. There's a flying car that's a cross between a go-kart and a helicopter, while another helicopter gives tours without a pilot. Renault cars will soon score your driving performance while Bill Gates is investing in a company that will make butter from air. Chinese scientists have grown human brain cells that can control robots. Text to speech can now bring to audio life stars from the past with uncanny reality. There's a new way of trying to prevent rhino poaching by making horns radioactive. And there are some impressive crowdfunded smart binoculars.

The Bigger Picture: The General Election, Starmer at NATO & the future of Biden and the Tories
Political commentator Mike Indian analyses the General Election result, astonishing for its massive majority on a tiny vote share and the way it exposed the oddities of the UK election system, particularly with Reform getting more votes than the Libdems but just a fraction of their seats. With Sir Kier Starmer probably only having a brief honeymoon period, Mike hopes they will underpromise and overdeliver. With Starmer at the NATO summit, will Labour deliver the promised defence increase in this dangerous period? He explains why Joe Biden should step aside and looks at the future for the Tories, currently facing electoral irrelevance.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: AI and Geospatial/Spatial Technology
Dan Ridsdale, head of technology at Edison Group, looks at the state of play with AI, a structural growth trend, where only the companies on the hardware side stand at a premium. In looking at where the revenue from AI will come, investors need to consider what sort of companies will benefit from its use and which have the best relationships with the AI providers. He also discusses geospatial and spatial technology, an area in which the UK excels. As people are not paying this area of growth enough attention, shares in companies such as 1Spatial are not standing at a premium.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Debt is the Achilles Heel of Democracy
The scale of the nominal national debt is staggering, but when you add in unfunded pension schemes (state and public sector) and HM Treasury indemnities to the Bank of England it places a heavy load indeed on the new Chancellor. Her early career at the Bank of England and HBOS will have prepared Rachel Reeves well to tackle this challenge in her new role as Chancellor of the Exchequer; and she will be well aware of the heavy burden being placed on younger generations.
