“Much of our intellectual elite who think they have ‘the solutions’ have actually cut themselves off from understanding the basis for much of the most important human progress.” Michael Nielsen
immediately followed by: “People, ideas, machines - in that order” Colonel Boyd
Opening quotes from Dominic Cummings’ Blog - Home page
While it’s indeed unfortunate to see Sajid Javid move to the backbenches, there’s a lot of truth in the old saying that a house divided against itself cannot stand. In this case, it’s the House of Special Advisers (SpAds), not ministers, but the same holds true. I wonder if we ever will discover whether the pre-emption of the HS2 decision by HM Treasury was the final straw that broke the camel’s back.
Whatever it was, we now need to look forward - there are major things to be delivered, and they need to focus on people, as Colonel Boyd says above.
So please READ ON .. as this week we look at what a Task Group working with the new HM Treasury/combined SpAd team could achieve in bringing about a more egalitarian form of capitalism, together with reporting on some encouraging 30-year projections from Capital Economics at their Emerging Markets Forum last Wednesday.

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.
