100% online radio, across the world

 

Please note that you're now asked to sign in (as a one-off event) when listening to Share Radio, either as our live stream or podcasts, or for listening to Share Music via our website and/or apps. It’s part of our transformation, to make our service more relevant and personal for listeners: and it’s made possible by being 100% online.

After you first enter your email address and have activated it, you shouldn't have to enter it again - as your computer or mobile device will remember that you've signed up. It’s not unlike BBC i-Player which is also asking listeners to say who they are. Those who have already registered in full do not need to activate: just log in, please, with the email address used for your full registration.

However we are also entering everyone who signs up and activates into our fortnightly prize draw for an internet radio, pre-set for Share Radio and Share Music: so there’ll be a chance to experience one of our Ocean Digital WR-220s which respond to a simple on-off button.

Share Radio online continues to be accompanied by Share Music, its sister online station: great instrumental background music for reading, drafting or entertaining.

 

 

 

At this year’s London Investor Show (20th October 2017), our very own Gavin Oldham, Chairman of The Share Centre and of The Share Foundation, 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 a new partnership with publishers Harriman House, Share Radio has produced its first audiobook 'Superinvestors', written by Matthew Partridge and read by some of Share Radio's best known presenters: Simon Rose, Fenella Fudge, Glen Thompsett, Ed Bowsher and accomplished actor David Ricardo Pearce, whose ancestor is featured in the book.

30 years on – what next?

As Hurricane Ophelia lashes the Western Approaches and Ireland, we recall the great storm of October 1987 thirty years ago. That storm was closely followed by a devastating market crash which nearly de-railed the Government's sale of their share of BP - but not quite.

Here's what Nigel Lawson wrote in his memoirs: “By malign coincidence, the world’s largest ever share sale collided with the world’s most dramatic stock-market crash” 

There's no massive share sale in the offing at present, but could Hurricane Ophelia be the harbinger of another market collapse?

READ ON ..  for a first hand account of October 1987 and our thoughts on the market this time ..

Egalitarian Capitalism

One of the most striking developments in the past few years has been the disenfranchisement felt by many towards business and politics, particularly among the young, to the extent that it’s become a threat to the very continuation of the free market and capitalism. Gavin Oldham, Chairman of The Share Centre and of The Share Foundation, joins our host Simon Rose to discuss a set of proposals he has developed intended to introduce a more egalitarian form of capitalism, giving everyone in our society the opportunity to benefit from wealth creation enabled by the free market.

This is Money: Can a nudge make you richer?

On this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Rachel Rickard Straus and Georgie Frost take a look at Professor Thaler’s work, his prize, behavioural economics and the whole nudge idea. Does this all really work? Behavioural economists believe a gentle nudge in the right direction can make you richer and over recent years they have managed to win the ears of governments around the world – including the UK’s. This week one of the thinkers who helped spread the word on behavioural economics, Professor Richard Thaler, won a Nobel Prize for economics. In the old world of economics textbooks, people behaved perfectly rationally and made the right choices. In the real world, of course, we don’t. We make irrational decisions that fly in the face of economic theory all the time. Yet, our irrational behaviour can be an asset. It means that we can be nudged into making the best choices. Professor Thaler’s catch-all advice is whether you’re a business or a government, if you want people to do something, make it easy. In Britain, one example adopted by the Government has been pensions. Instead of getting people to opt into a pension, we’re now automatically enrolled and then offered the chance to opt out. It’s now easier to have a pension than not to. Unsurprisingly, more people now save into pensions.

IEA: What's next for Uber and the Gig Economy?

We’re joined by Diego Zuluaga, Head of Tech Policy at the IEA, and Digital Officer Madeline Grant, as they discuss Uber and the gig economy in the light of last week’s decision from TfL not to reissue Uber’s licence. The pair discuss the ruling – how it came about, and take a look at some of TfL’s motivations. They also explore what the ruling means in practice – for the 40,000 drivers who earn a living from the platform, for the app’s 3.5 million users in London, and for the broader future of tech and innovation in Britain.

IEA: How Would Unilateral Free Trade Work in Practice

On this podcast, you’ll hear an update from our Brexit Unit, run by the IEA’s chief economist Julian Jessop. Coming up, digital Officer Madeline Grant discusses the concept of unilateral free trade with Julian – a policy he thinks should be considered during the Brexit negotiations. Julian gives a comprehensive explanation of what unilateral free trade would mean in practice – and how after Brexit, the UK will be free to set its own trade rules and tariff barriers. Julian and Madeline also discuss the potential disadvantages, especially in the short term, of such a policy – mainly the disadvantages to British producers, who will face increased competition, with no guarantee it’ll be easier to export to other parts of the world.
