Full Commentary

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Matthew 6:34

I’m not really interested what David Cameron’s memoirs say about Boris Johnson’s motivations for supporting Brexit. What would be much more interesting is to hear why he thought that ‘no ever closer union’ would provide any more than a short-term panacea to justify his ‘Remain’ argument.

As we have argued consistently in this newsletter, once you form a single currency you must have single integrated democratic leadership in order to provide for long-term stability. This is, yet again, another example where humanity allows short-term expediency to trump long-term logic, and we do it over and over again.

So please READ ON .. as this week we roam across wide areas, from economics to ecology and from philanthropy to physics, where discounting the future has become the distinguishing feature of contemporary humanity; just at the same time as our ability to impact the lives of future generations has reached its greatest extent.

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.

Policy Matters: The effects of class differences even within elite professions

In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Matt Dickson and Franz Buscha talk to Sam Friedman, Associate Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics and a member of the Social Mobility Commission. Sam explains his recent research highlighting how those from working class backgrounds find themselves earning less than colleagues from more privileged families, even when they have the same qualifications and work in the same elite professions. Going beyond the numbers to understand this ‘class pay gap’, Sam describes the numerous interviews he undertook with elite professionals from different backgrounds and what this revealed about the hidden mechanisms that operate, often rewarding privilege rather than merit or ability. The discussion then moves on to the dominance of private schools – and especially a particular group of private schools – in the elite strata of society and considers the sorts of policies that might help to make Britain a more meritocratic society.

Mini Mindset: The Cost of Inknorance

Adam Cox talks to Charlie de la Haye from Epson UK regarding new research revealing the UK’s ignorance when it comes to the cost of printer ink. Some believe that ink is more expensive than scorpion venom, (the world’s most expensive liquid), and some believe that it’s less expensive than champagne, when printer ink is much more expensive. With students heading back to university en masse at this time of year, it means that many students will either overspend on ink by up to a thousand pounds over a 3-year degree or potentially avoid printing essential work to keep costs down. They discuss how new printing technology could help students save a lot of money.
