#94 - Your personal inflation rate

24 mins | Nov 15, 2021

Today's episode from 15th November 2021. Up first this Monday: The growing cost of living has rapidly risen in just a few months and is negatively affecting millions. As everyday prices rise, we've got a piece on what you can do to keep an eye on your income and spending. Then later, as a new documentary is released about one of the biggest names in football- Arsene Wenger, we get an insight into his success, his single-mindedness and his selfishness. The growing cost of living will negatively affect millions. Since the summer of 2021, inflation has sharply increased, and the Bank of England expects this trend to continue. As a result, we can expect the prices we pay for goods and services to rise and energy bill increases to come in unpleasant, unpredictable jumps. For The Financial Times, Stefan Wagstyl warns that the low-inflation environment of the 2010s seems to be over and urges us to find the time to take stock of our finances to curb their effects. The former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has experienced the immense highs and the catastrophic lows of the highest tier of football. In the lead up to the release of a documentary on his life, he talks to Chris Godfrey for The Guardian about his all-consuming love of football, single-mindedness and the toll his job took on his life. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
