Trailer

**FIRST EPISODE - WEDNESDAY 30TH AUGUST** Does money really make the world go round? Economics, business and finance have long been subjects we leave to the stock brokers, hedge fund managers and business school professors who spend their lives obsessing over them - but there’s no reason we shouldn’t discuss ‘money’ in the same way we talk about sport and TV.  In The Rest Is Money, business correspondent and broadcaster Steph McGovern is joined by old friend and economics expert Robert Peston to explore everything we need to know about the issues that affect us in our everyday lives: how will AI affect your job and our economic prospects? Are we stuck with higher inflation for years to come? Why are wealthy nations like Saudi Arabia buying up sport?  Steph and Robert will decode all the business jargon that you hear on the airwaves and break it down for you, while also reaching back into the past to revisit some of the biggest financial events of the last half century - to see if there are any lessons we can learn from them today… Learn more about your ad choices.
