This week’s Money Special will make your wallet happy

From bad debt to blockchain, the positive impacts of small investments and how to trace forgotten cash, our Money Special is here

MoneySavingExpert chief Martin Lewis reckons we’re in the most the defining moment of uncertainty for a generation.

Brexit fuels fears of a national food crisis, missing medicines, jammed ports and grounded flights and economic woes.

We can’t stop any of that happening, but we can equip you with the knowledge to look after your wallet.

The good news is, you’re richer than you think, and in this week’s Big Issue we delve into a goldmine* (*not guaranteed…) of forgotten funds, from flight delays to work uniforms.

But there’s no use in scrambling for loose change if you’re not savvy with your spends. Money guru and author Laura Whateley shares her top five tips for staying in control of your finances.

It’s easy to bury your head in the sand when it comes to saving and spending, and debt builds up quicker than you think. This week we ask if banks can have their debt cancelled, why can’t the rest of us?

We speak to Daniel Edelstyn and Hilary Powell who were so stunned by the low prices that debts are sold for on the secondary market that they started up new venture The Bank Job.

And as we look towards Social Saturday, a celebration of all things social enterprise we find out how your money can have an impact thanks to Big Issue Invest.

As Big Issue editor Paul McNamee said: “It’s equally important that we uncover ways that, in uncertain times, those of us not in the financial industry can gain knowledge about the financial moves that are shaking down.”

We’re here to bring you that knowledge.
