Full Commentary

All babies are born naked, but soon after some are dressed in expensive clothes bought at the best boutiques while the majority wear rags.”

Yanis Varoufakis

So begins the book ‘Talking to My Daughter - a brief history of capitalism’ by the former finance minister of Greece. He points directly at the great Achilles heel of capitalism but, buried in this quotation, there lies the great opportunity to tackle it by intergenerational re-balancing.

In just four weeks’ time, the first of six million young people throughout the United Kingdom will get access to their Child Trust Funds as they reach their 18th birthday. For the next 8 ½ years, this radical opportunity to empower a generation of disadvantaged young adults will be with us. If it works, Gordon Brown and Ruth Kelly will have shown the world how to solve one of the greatest economic dilemmas: how to retain the vibrant wealth creation attributes of capitalism, whilst at the same time allowing each new generation the chance to benefit from it.

Giving young people some money with which to start life is, however, only half the story. The other half is to build that vital sense of ownership - and responsibility - which comes with learning financial awareness. So please READ ON .. as this week, after providing a range of recent analysis on why this is such an urgent problem, we show how incentivised learning can provide the same breakthrough for young disadvantaged people in developed countries as micro-finance has done for poverty-stricken adults in India and Africa.

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.

The Bigger Picture: The political and economic impact of the home-working revolution

Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at what the Covid-19 home-working revolution might mean to Britain's middle classes, who could find that their jobs no longer need to be done by people within the UK. He also considers what the changed work environment might mean to the status and role of London and the City. He also warns that we should be paying attention to the danger in the mounting tension between Australia and China.

This is Money: Is this the end of summer holidays? The pain in Spain and what happens next

After a great deal of fuss about air bridges and people being able to go on summer holiday, things suddenly changed last weekend. A swift about turn saw a 14 day quarantine period imposed for those arriving in the UK from Spain at just six hours’ notice, hitting tens of thousands of holidaymakers who are there already, those with trips booked and leaving Britons hoping for some Spanish sunshine stuck in travel limbo… again. So is this the end of summer holidays for 2020? Are holidays to Spain off the cards for some time, and can you go to France, Italy, Greece or anywhere else safe in the knowledge you can come home and not have to take an extra fortnight off work? On this week’s podcast Georgie Frost – in Spain and facing a 14 day quarantine if she can get back – is joined by Simon Lambert and Grace Gausden to talk holidays, travel insurance, refunds, air bridges and whether even a staycation is safe. Plus, as savings rates take another tumble should you lock your money away for five years at 1.1 per cent just to protect against further falls? And finally, is buy-to-let back? A stamp duty cut, low rates and a weaker property market has got property investors interested again but are they saving money now just to lose it in future?

More interesting, he found, is the DVD release of Radioactive, with Rosamund Pike starring as Marie Curie. He also looks at the life and career of Olivia de Havilland, one of the last of the stars from Hollywood's golden era.
