This Is Money: How will rapidly rising interest rates affect you?
Base rate has gone from 0.1% to 1.25% in the space of six months, in a flurry of rate rising that would have been considered unthinkable a year ago. Yet, as the Bank of England delivered another 0.25% raise, voices were raised in some corners to demand why it hadn't gone further. Why not a 0.5% jump or even a 0.75% one, as the Fed had delivered in the US? With inflation running at 9% and expected to head north into double digits, the onus is on the Bank of England to show it has a grip and we aren't heading back to the 1970s. But is rapidly raising rates the right thing to do and how will it affect savers, borrowers and investors? Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert discuss the case for and against rate rises and what the impact is for the economy and people. Mortgage rates have risen even faster than the base rate, so what can those who need to remortgage do - and will this sink house prices? The team assess the prospects for the property market and offer their tips on what borrowers should do to prepare and protect themselves. Meanwhile, over in the US, it's the stock market that's suffering as rates rise. Why is that, and how bad could this bear market be? And finally, petrol prices keep hitting record highs and we want people to switch to electric cars but the Government has swiped away the £1,500 grant that helps people buy more affordable models. Will that make a difference, or has electric car demand reached a level where ditching a bung to help out is wise?

The Hypnotist: Danielle Confidence
Building confidence to deal with interviews and applications for promotion can be challenging when potential role models appear boastful or arrogant — behaviour one might not want to copy. So it can be useful to seek out an example of someone who not only has the necessary confidence but also the characteristics one might wish to emulate. This approach is known as a circle of excellence or, as Adam Cox describes it, a cylinder of confidence.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Stress test your portfolio & wait for opportunities
Russ Mould of A J Bell points out that while central bankers may claim the war in Ukraine is responsible for inflation surging, it's their long-standing zero-interest-rate policy that has stacked the combustible material up ready to be ignited. For investors, the aim must be to preserve capital as markets react. Stress test your portfolio and think about sectors like banks (already pricing in recession) and real assets. There will be opportunities to come for those who have cash to hand.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Is Google's computer alive and other robotic innovations
Steve Caplin goes all robotic in this week's tech show. As well as a robot waiter and a robot pizza maker, there's a pea-sized robot doing an obstacle course and a sweaty robotic finger. At Google, there's an argument over whether one of its robots is actually alive, with an engineer claiming it is and trying to get it a lawyer. Internet Explorer is no more, there's a solar panel-festooned car and cars charged by an induction loop. And Sony have brought out a high-end Walkman MP3 player costing a mere £2,999.
