The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The knock-on effects of Ukraine
Russ Mould of A J Bell discusses the knock-on effect on economies and markets of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Much depends, he says, on whether things stabilise quickly or not. Of all post-war conflicts, he feels the Arab-Israeli War of 1973 could be the most relevant, with its extraordinary impact on energy prices. If there is no rapid solution, then central banks could find themselves battling stagflation with little in their armouries. Investors should aim for a diversified portolio with plenty of exposure to "real stuff", the antithesis of what's worked for the past ten years or more.

The Business of Film: The Duke, Cyrano & The Justice of Bunny King
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the UK box office just before 'The Batman' erupts onto cinema screens. With Uncharted still #1, the quirky true tale of 'The Duke' arrives at #3 with Jim Broadbent & Helen Mirren, the last film from Roger Michell. James gives it a thumbs up. He's less keen on musical 'Cyrano' at #7 with Peter Dinklage which never feels real. At #10 is 'The Godfather', still fresh after 50 years. James also recommends 'The Justice of Bunny King', a New Zealand drama available to rent on various platforms.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Amazon store closures, portable ski lift & ski tow, hill-climbing car & infinity train
Share Radio's tech whizz Steve Caplin tells Simon Rose why Amazon is closing 68 of its stores. For skiers going off-piste there's an autonomous ski lift on tracks or, more scarily, a portable tow rope with a winch. There's a car that can climb gradients greater than 50%, an infinity electric train at an Australian mine, we hear why planes are being covered with shark skin, about the company contracted to mine oxygen on the moon and a tide clock for surfers.

The Bigger Picture: The political ramifications of the invasion of Ukraine
Political commentator Mike Indian looks at the political ramifications of the Russian invasion of Ukraine eight days in. With Ukrainian resistance greater than anticipated, he feels that – to paraphrase Churchill – this could be at least the end of the beginning for Vladimir Putin. The attack, argues Mike, is reinvigorating NATO but he feels more can be done to tackle Russian dirty money being sheltered in the UK while not indiscriminately targeting those hostile to Putin's actions.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Fear and Greed
Our commentary for w/c 28 February: as Peter Kropotkin predicted over 100 years ago, the communist legacy of centralised dictatorship has left the Russian leadership in a total moral vacuum, steered by fear and greed; and now, noting their nuclear warning, also with a degree of insanity. By a strange co-incidence, two programmes broadcast by the BBC on the day the war started point the way to a brighter future, if we can steer our path through the current tragedy engulfing Ukraine.

This Is Money: How will the Ukraine crisis hit your finances and what should investors do?
Russia's invasion of Ukraine has created a tragic situation that goes far beyond worries about our finances, but it will have an impact on them. The ins and outs of the conflict are not something that This is Money is qualified to comment on, but the financial impact of events is something that readers and listeners come to us to learn about. Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look at what that impact could be. How the Russian-Ukraine conflict will affect out personal finances: from energy bills, to petrol prices and food, to the immediate volatility it has thrust on to people's investments, the team look at what is happening and what may happen next. Should investors stay calm and stick to their guns, or are their merits in one outlier suggestion of moving 50% to cash and battening down the hatches? Also, the added problem of inflation for people's investments and how to combat it. Plus, the latest on the state pension underpayment scandal and how some councils are now trying to rake in money from those paid back lump sums. And finally, its not an uncommon situation now to sell a property and step out of the market while you find a new one, but what should you do with a huge sum of cash in the meantime?

Motley Fool Money: Why We Never Try To Time The Market
A sudden upswing for stocks late in the week is only the latest reminder of why it's a bad idea to try and time the market. Jason Moser and Ron Gross share data that proves staying in the market is much more efficient (and lucrative) for investors than jumping in and out, and discuss: Etsy increasing their seller transaction fee, Block's transaction revenue growth, Home Depot and Lowe's getting different reactions from similar 4th-quarter reports, and the latest from Beyond Meat, Mercadolibre, Fulgent Genetics, and Booking Holdings. Chief Investment Officer Andy Cross talks with Jeff Green, CEO of The Trade Desk, and Jason and Ron answer a listener's question about how to build a portfolio. Jason's radar stock is Zoom Video and Ron unveils his "Resilient Basket" of stocks! (Costco, Disney, Domino's Pizza, Home Depot, Microsoft, Target).
