Thought for the Week: The Need for Fresh Expressions
While Pope Francis looks east to Mongolia, bringing praise for their religious freedom and forward-looking encouragement, The Times reports general confusion among Church of England clergy — meanwhile our fast-changing and often lost and lonely society has a real need for the unconditional love offered by the Christian faith. This calls for Fresh Expressions from the Church of England — an initiative introduced by Rt. Revd. Steven Croft, now Bishop of Oxford:, but currently only 18% of the Church's clergy support its expansion. If only the Anglican Church would learn more from theologian Richard Hooker’s 3-legged stool of Scripture, Tradition and Reason: but in practice its ‘Tradition’ leg is about ten times higher than that of ‘Reason’.

This Is Money: Are you on track for a comfy retirement and do you really need a £600k pot?
Inflation has been ravaging our finances, but it is also threatening our future. According to new research, if you want a comfortable retirement, you need to build a pot of nearly £600,000. The rising cost of living requires an extra £4,200 a year to maintain the same lifestyle as in spring last year - which means you have to save another £69,000 in all. Tanya Jefferies, Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Helen Crane delve into pensions, as separate research shows more than half of people saving into one believe they will never put away enough to stop working when they get older. What can you do? Tanya reveals how to invest your pension and live off it in retirement. One thing that isn’t going to help your retirement funds is forking out to help your kids get on the property ladder. But that is exactly what is happening at the moment and in huge numbers. Financial aid is expected to support almost half of all homes purchased by buyers under the age of 55 this year - totalling £8.1billion. Is tapping into the Bank of Mum and Dad fair? People who spent big sums on state pension top-ups are angry their cash has gone missing and they can't get answers out of HMRC or the Department for Work and Pensions – Tanya gives an important update. Lee runs the rule over the new 6.2% one-year fixed-rate from National Savings and Investments, alongside four savings trends gleaned from a new Bank of England report. Helen reveals the four pressures landlords are facing as more of them opt to sell up. And lastly, are you suffering from dogflation, catflation or any kind of petflation? And how can you bite back?

The Bigger Picture: BRICS & de-dollarisation, road pricing & is the NHS recruitment plan affordable?
Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at the recent BRICS meeting and the implications for the club's drive for new members and the desire for de-dollarisation for the world economy. Looking at ULEZ and other schemes in the UK, he points out that we are going back to the future, given that the Georgians had 30,000 miles of turnpike trusts. He believes that the future of driving in the UK will be road pricing. And he looks at a report which says that the NHS's plan to hire a million more staff could see the Treasury needing to find an extra £50bn by 2036, which may not be affordable. Tim feels that we are heading for a mixed economy system in health and social care.

The Business of Film: Theater Camp, The Dive & Andrzej Zulawski

The Business of Film: Theater Camp, The Dive & Andrzej Zulawski
James Cameron-Wilson continues to marvel at Barbie, #1 for 6 weeks with a total of £90m, making it the 7th highest grossing UK film. Oppenheimer is steady at #2 with £54m. Theater Camp, a mockumentary, limped in at #15. James found it unrealistic and less funny than it thinks it is, but with great child performances. Underwater thriller The Dive was #20 but, though diverting, pales beside others in that genre. James was more impressed with Eureka's Masters of Cinema box set of Andrzej Zulawski, including The Third Part of the Night, Devil, On The Silver Globe and a documentary. Cineastes should love it.

The Financial Outlook For Personal Investors: What is the underperformance of small caps telling us?
Russ Mould of A J Bell points out that while stocks in tech, the US and Latin America have been doing well, markets everywhere have shunned small cap companies. He wonders why they aren't doing well in what is said to be a risk-on period. Having been trained in a bear market, it's making him feel cautious, even though the markets may think they're back in Goldilocks territory. However, he suggests some indicators worth keeping an eye on.
