#51 - Buy now, pay later

14 mins | Sep 14, 2021

Today's episode from 15th September 2021. On this morning's show: 'Buy Now, Pay Later' is the new 'YOLO' (You Only Live Once). We explore how startups making payment plans slicker and easier might actually be detrimental to young consumers. Later on, is decision making difficult for you? We've got an advice columnist's take on how to overcome chronic indecision and make progress with your life. Is the “everyone wins” innovation from businesses like Klarna and Affirm too good to be true? From the Financial Times, Patrick Jenkins explores how innovative credit is clever and useful, but its subtle downsides indicate an urgent need for proper regulation. Whatever you chose will change who you become, and you cannot predict how in advance, writes advice columnist Eleanor Gordon-Smith for the Guardian. 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.
