“When the fear of loneliness is looming, remember I am at your side.”

Gerard Markland

A sense of belonging is vital to every human being, so the report on loneliness published by the Office for National Statistics is harrowing: particularly for those aged 16-24, where the problem is most acute. In this last week we also heard much about gang violence in London and elsewhere, and in our commentary we reflect on the potential linkage between gang formation and the fear of loneliness for young people.

READ ON ..  for our review of some of the potential causes of loneliness, and how we might address them.

Occupy Movement Protesters

At this year’s London Investor Show (20th October 2017), Gavin Oldham, Chairman of The Share Centre and of The Share Foundation and founder of Share Radio, gave a speech on his vision for egalitarian capitalism.

He sets out his main set of proposals below:

"Egalitarian Capitalism is an alternative to socialism which, while fostering and encouraging enterprise for all, acts to involve and empower people right across society and especially the young. 

Six key steps of egalitarian capitalism

  1. A proper programme of financial education to help people from all walks of life to build a personal store of freely disposable assets.
  2. Setting the conditions for disinter-mediation, in particular reducing the extent of parasitic inter-mediation which separates people from a sense of ownership and control.
  3. Direct share ownership: drawing together employee, consumer and share-owner, providing much improved corporate governance so that individual share-owners can participate fully in the companies in which they have chosen to invest.
  4. Calls for risk to be properly recognised when setting taxation on reward. This means continuing to recognise the self-employed, and taxing capital gains at a lower rate than income taxes.
  5. Addresses inter-generational equity, introducing a programme of incentivised financial learning for the disadvantaged young, fuelled from inheritance tax receipts, to enable them to achieve their full potential in adult life.
  6. Tackles one of the most difficult issues for democratic capitalism: universal benefits. It proposes a new voluntary approach for higher taxpayers to make discretionary payments for using universal, state-run services."

In this week’s podcast, Rachel Rickard Straus and Lee Boyce say it is time for people to fight back and switch.

IEA: How Much Should We Worry About Inequality?

How much should we worry about inequality? With ongoing Corbyn-mania in UK politics, and the popularity of books like Thomas Piketty’s Capital in The 21st Century, it seems like we’ve never cared more about promoting equality of outcome. But is our concern justified? Is economic disparity a characteristic of modernity – or a persistent feature of human civilisation? On our podcast this week, Dr Steve Davies, Head of Education at the IEA, and News Editor Kate Andrews, examine this controversial topic.
