    Bank of England Economist: Interest rates must be cut

    Bank of England Economist: Interest rates must be cut

    Economist and external member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, Swati Dhingra talks to Robert and Steph about why she thinks the time has come to lower Bank Rate, the interest rate set by the Bank of England that determines the cost of borrowing and savings rates for all of us.  

    She discusses the heavy responsibility of deciding how much money the British public have in their pockets and discusses where interest rates are likely to settle for the next ten years or longer. The Rest Is Money also examines with her why the Bank of England was too slow to raise interest rates when the inflationary surge began and whether monetary policy can be adapted to meet the different needs of the UK’s regions

ReviewerTheBruce ,

Great podcast that keeps me engaged. Some waffling and filler here and there but I’ll keep listening

A great podcast for those with an interest in UK economic news, discussion, issues, etc. I've yet to come across any competitor in this space which matches the quality The Rest is Money delivers. Steph and Robert serve as great hosts. Though both are certainly experts with both haivng sucessful careers in UK economic broadcasting, they differ in many ways. With different background, styles, and sometimes positions on key issues, the show is kept interesting with the balance and insights these can differences bring forth.

The show does have fair share of "filler". An episode of 40 minutes, 2 or 3 days week gives a lot of time to talk and sometimes there's clearly not much to talk about. While this does allow for deeper dives into nicher issues (which what makes a good podcast great), there are plenty of moments when there's just not that much to say. Both hosts have a habit diving into telling stories of little relevance or just waffling through a topic. While sometimes entertaining it can devolve the show into background noise.

I'm looking forward to see how this relatively new show evolves. I think it's yet to find perfection, but it's found a good formula which has kept me interested and engaged thus far.

PS: Can’t help but notice at least one reviewer irritated by Steph, calling her “socialist”, and want her gone. First, she’s clearly not a socialist. Get a grip. Im certain this view is just another example of the weird British hatred towards women with working class and/or Northern accents expressing expertise or educated opinions. I don’t always agree with her but she’s clearly educated enough to educate the general public.

Ditch the socialist bias

Steph is clearly more interested in herself and her socialist bias than money, business or economics. Irritating, ignorant and biased. Useless partner of an otherwise interesting RP
