“It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in the self-destruction of the human race.”

Dr. Arnold Toynbee 1889-1975

The population of India comprises 52% of that of our great ‘Family of Nations’ which is the Commonwealth. Perhaps British historian Arnold Toynbee recognised the same essential feature in the Indian sub-continent as William Gladstone: that in the final resort it is only mutual love that can bind people and nations together.

The Commonwealth heads of government have displayed that goodwill in abundance over the past week and, for the United Kingdom in the throes of Brexit, it could have considerable economic benefits as well. But as we progress into a world where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is showing such immense power to disrupt, it is only those countries which understand the importance of mutual love which will make good its promise for developing human potential: so we also welcome the report published last week by a House of Lords Select Committee on AI.

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."

IEA: Are There Limits to Free Speech?

Are there limits to free speech – and if so, where should they be set? In this week’s podcast, Dr Steve Davies, Head of Education at the IEA and News Editor Kate Andrews examine this question. They take a look at free speech on social media, and at universities, where issues like ‘safe spaces’ and ‘no platforming’ are increasingly controversial. Yet, the situation is rather more complex than it might seem. Though, Steve argues, speech should be as free as possible – private institutions and private individuals also have a right to determine what speech they permit on their own property. And public funding of institutions can also complicate matters.

Inside Property: The Work of Landlord Associations

Richard Blanco asks Douglas Haig, Vice Chair of the Residential Landlords Association and Richard Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of the National Landlords Association about the work of landlord associations; whether they can be legitimately seen as the voice of landlords; how their offer supports the landlord community; and why campaigns to prevent – and now roll back – recent tax changes have been thwarted. Also joining the debate is Vanessa Warwick, landlord and founder of propertytribes.com, who outlines the role she sees for digital platforms. What role might these organisations play as the government tries to professionalise and regulate the sector, should landlord associations merge to give them more clout, and is it fair to criticise web portals as a forum for ranting?
