This Is Money: The Budget Verdict — pensions, childcare, energy bills and dodging recession
Jeremy Hunt had a spring in his step this week as he delivered his Budget. It was a considerably different air to the gloomy warning of trouble ahead in his November Autumn Statement. The headline act was a major shake-up of pension saving rules, removing restrictions that limit the amount that can go in without tax penalties. The lifetime allowance was abolished rather than raised, the annual allowance got a big bump, and rules to stop pension recycling were eased. Was this a bung for the rich shovelling cash into their pension - and doctors - or a move that will help many more young professional savers aspiring to a decent retirement, who may not realise the lifetime limit could be hit? Georgie Frost, Helen Crane and Simon Lambert delve into the Budget and joining them to explain the pensions element is a special guest, This is Money's retirement columnist and ex-pensions minister Steve Webb. Also in the Budget was news on the economy, a ray of hope on energy bills, and a big expansion of free childcare... but it won't come in for some time. The team look at all those elements and more. And finally, as the Budget claimed the headlines something else was rumbling on: a mini-banking crisis sparked by the Sillicon Valley Bank collapse. What is going on there and should we be worried?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The UK Budget & market nervousness over the banks
Russ Mould of A JBell thinks Jeremy Hunt delivering the Budget did his best with a weak hand. Essentially, there is no money when the national interest bill is £100bn. Market nervousness about contagion from SVB and Credit Suisse Russ puts down to money being cheap for far too long. It has meant that too many people have done risky, silly things. Nervous investors should remember the basics, sticking to disciplined companies with sound management. He also wonders if 5% is the new 17%.

The Business of Film: Scream VI, 65 & The Oscars
James Cameron-Wilson discusses the UK box office numbers with Simon Rose, with total take down 5% despite two big new films. Scream VI takes the #1 slot but James found it boring, unpleasant and full of unbelievable characters. Sci-fi thriller 65, starring Adam Driver, slips in at #3 ("irritating and dull"). James made a plea for discerning cinemagoers to go to charming romcom What's Love Got To Do With It (#7) while they still have the chance. He rounds up the podcast with a discussion of the Oscars, both the results and the ceremony itself.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Bing hallucinating, a paint revolution, an eternal battery & streaming classical music
Steve Caplin tells Simon Rose of the latest tech innovations. A startup has worked out how to use data processing centres to heat swimming pools which cool the PCs in return. Bing's latest GPT upgrade has many improvements, but still hallucinates and makes things up. There's a revolution in the world of paint, better protection for windswept buildings, a keyboard hand heater, spirally-constructed wind turbines and Apple moving into the world of streamed classical music.

The Bigger Picture: The Budget, small boats legislation and the BBC & Gary Lineker
Political commentator Mike Indian discusses Jeremy Hunt's Budget with Simon Rose, though he considers it more a Sunak Budget than a Hunt Budget. With little not already briefed beforehand, he feels the most important intervention for most people was the extension of free childcare. He found nothing in it, though, to galvanise the UK economy or slow Britain's comparative decline. He also remarks on the Illegal Immigration Bill, with neither main party admitting how dependent the UK is on migrant workers. Lastly, he looks at what he considers the "farcical situation" between the BBC and football pundit Gary Lineker.

Thought for the Week: Underlying Principles for Taxation

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Underlying Principles for Taxation
For the past 250 years, starting with Adam Smith, there have been valiant attempts to set out principles for taxation: but they have been principally domestic, and with no attempt to address inter-generational rebalancing. Without specific provisions requiring hypothecation of inheritance levies it's hard to see how disadvantaged young people can be empowered with resources and life skills so that all may share in future wealth creation. Don't expect change in this week's Budget, but the Treasury Select Committee should look again at the principles they established over ten years ago.
