    We spend on average 133 million euros a month on our mobile phone bills but many of us are shelling out more than we need to.  Conor Brophy was here with some advice on how to manage your mobile. Navigating mobile price plans is torturous. Presumably that's why people end up on a plan that's not necessarily the cheapest or best one for them?   Exactly.

    Inequality

    Inequality

    A recent Oxfam report estimated the wealth of the richest 85 people in the world to be the equivalent of that held by the poorest 3.5 billion. Inequality, it said, had been exacerbated by the financial crisis and subsequent recession. But how are the rich are getting richer and is inequality a natural phenomenon that can't be alleviated or a serious global problem that needs to be tackled?

    Banking

    Over the coming weeks customers of Danske will have have to find a new institution with which to bank as it completes its withdrawal from retail banking here.  The future of state-owned lender PermanentTSB remains to be decided at EU level.

    Internet Shopping

    More than half of us will order at least one of our Christmas gifts over the internet this year. The total online seasonal shopping spend in Ireland is expected to pass half a billion euro for the first time. But what do you do if a gift bought online for a loved one is faulty or simply doesn't live up to expectations? Conor Brophy was with Sean from the RTÉ business desk.

    Moving Bank Accounts

    Moving Bank Accounts

        Market research shows many of us are unhappy with our banks but we are decidedly unlikely to move our accounts. Customers of Danske Bank and ACC will soon have to switch as both of those institutions exit the Irish retail banking market. Conor Brophy has been looking at why we are so reluctant to move banks despite our dissatisfaction and whether it might be worth your while to do so.
