Full Commentary

If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.”

Lyndon B. Johnson

This table of stock market price performance over the past five years speaks volumes about how life is changing. Everyday fortunes are made and lost on the market, but it’s the human stories behind this transformation of the way we do things that matter.

There are two great driving forces behind these changes - the takeover by the digital economy, and climate change. In both areas, but particularly the first, the virus emergency has accelerated the change. As we sped through the awful milestones of half a million dead and ten million infected this last weekend, and as the word ‘rampant’ is now the only way to describe the virus’s spread in the United States and Brazil, it’s clear that the acceleration of change will continue.

So please READ ON .. as this week we consider the extent of popular support for these two driving forces, and what the contrast between them says of our care for future generations.

St. Paul's besieged

Welcome to Gavin Oldham's full presentation describing his vision for egalitarian capitalism.

The main set of proposals are as follows:

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 encouraging innovation and continuing to recognise the risks taken by self-employed people.
  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.
