Share Radio has joined with The Share Centre and The Share Foundation to publish this campaigning poster, calling for the democratisation of wealth creation to address the great disparity of wealth and opportunity within the United Kingdom. The poster was first published in Private Eye on 21st June, two days before the EU referendum. 

In a full page editorial profile in the Times on Saturday 23rd July founder Gavin Oldham describes how he sees this as the key driver behind the recent Brexit vote. The three Share enterprises have the same vision and values: and by sharing knowledge, financial opportunities and service provision with people from all walks of life, they have the potential to make it happen.

So in response to Prime Minister Theresa May stating the purpose of her new Government to 'do everything we can to help anybody, whatever your background, to go as far as your talents will take you', we can say that this is precisely what Share Radio, The Share Centre and The Share Foundation are designed to achieve. 


Philip Hammond has delivered his first Autumn Statement as chancellor. In it, he announced that the UK's growth forecasts have been downgraded as a result of June's referendum while at the same time announcing that the government's no longer looking to return to a budget surplus by 2020 - as announced by George Osborne. There was also an announcement made of a fund which will invest around 23 billion pounds in rail, telecoms and housing infrastructure over the next five years. Brexit meanwhile has been attributed to the rise in government borrowing which is expected to be 122 billion pounds over the next 5 years.

UK GDP Per Capita 

The preliminary estimate for GDP growth in the second quarter of 2016 was 0.6%, slightly higher than in the first quarter of the year. However, on a GDP per capita basis, the ten-year growth rate has fallen to the lowest level in at least fifty years.

The blue line (measured against the left hand axis) shows gross domestic product (GDP), adjusted for inflation using the chained volume measure and divided by the average estimated population in each year (according to the ONS) to get a per capita figure, on a rolling four-quarterly basis. The red line (measured against the right hand axis) shows the growth rate over the previous ten years.

Greg Opie, programme director at the Economic Research Council, joins Simon Rose to discuss the chart on Wednesday 27 July at 7:00 pm.
