"You’re right. I am an atheist, but the Church does healing: and we need healing in this country.”

A ‘very senior politician’ responding to the Archbishop of Canterbury

The above quotation is drawn directly from Archbishop Justin’s address in York Minster on Sunday 7th July. That ‘very senior politician’ had come to see him 2-3 weeks previously, asking for the Church of England’s involvement in issues needing mediation and reconciliation. ++ Justin’s question was: ‘But why come to the Church? So far as I know, you don’t believe what we believe, what I believe”.

But of course you don’t have to believe in order to see the need for healing and reconciliation. You only have to see the tensions at all levels of society, for example over Brexit, evident each week in BBC’s Question Time. Meanwhile youth violence is endemic, and young people themselves are deeply challenged by mental health issues.

Internationally, the position is hardly any better: Donald Trump’s combative style has created strains right across the world: from the Mexican border to the Far East, and from the Straits of Hormuz to the UK embassy in Washington.

What has happened to the middle ground, where so few now feel at home? Please READ ON .. as we look at how generations of the future must learn from ++ Justin’s art of ‘disagreeing well’.

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.

This is Money: Inheritance Tax is the most hated of all taxes – should it be overhauled?

It's official: IHT is the country's most hated tax. That's according to the Office of Tax Simplification, who have been looking into the quirks of the system at the request of the Chancellor. What needs to change – and could a Labour plan, bubbling away in the background, really be the answer? Editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost take a look. Whatever happens with IHT, most want to leave as much of their wealth as possible to loved ones when they pass away – so just how do you do it and how many bend the rules? Elsewhere, we update on what's going on at Deutsche Bank as thousands of jobs across the globe are axed. Eon goes green and says millions of its customers will now receive 100 per cent renewable electricity – but what does that mean? And on the topic of green, we have details of the first all-electric Mini – how much will it cost, what is its range and most importantly... is it any good?

In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson discuss the recently published ‘Augar Review’ of Post-18 education and funding; explaining what it is, how it came about, and what the main recommendations are.

In light of recent public debate around whether social mobility should even be a policy objective, the discussion moves on to considering what social mobility entails and how it relates to the broader concept of social justice.

NEF: Generation left

That’s our big question on the Weekly Economics Podcast this week and to help us answer it, Ayeisha is joined by Keir Milburn, author of Generation Left, and lecturer in political economy and organisation at University of Leicester, and Shelly Asquith, a political advisor at Unite the Union.

This is Moneyball: Its F1 future now looks safe – but why was it under threat... and what's it like to drive?

What's going on at Silverstone and why was its place on the Formula One calendar in doubt? That's the question assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost tackle this week. It looks like the future of the F1 race in Northamptonshire has been secured – but what's behind the economics of the iconic track and its owners? We are joined this week by former British F1 driver Mark Blundell – 1992 Le Mans winner and three-time F1 podium finisher. He gives us his views on Silverstone, how technology has changed the face of motor racing substantially since the 1990s and why – aged 53 – he decided to get back behind the wheel, competitively. We look into the Silverstone contract, new races for 2020, the threat of a London Grand Prix, why it is important to the economy – and the impact paid-for TV is having on sport.
