Full Commentary

Sometimes they strew His way, and His sweet praises sing;

resounding all the day Hosannas to their King."

John Ireland

We’ve relegated Brexit to a 'thought for the day' alongside our commentary this week, from which you can click through to get the full text of the EU-Canada free trade agreement if you so wish. This is Holy Week, and that takes precedence.

One of the most memorable sermons - but it was in fact more like a homily - to which I have listened was in Lambeth Palace Chapel several years ago, in the run-up to Easter break. The then Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams (pictured alongside, courtesy of Wikipedia), gave a totally different perspective on Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, describing it as divine marketing: hugely raising the profile and significance of the world-changing days ahead.

The bridge between business and faith does not come easily for many people, notwithstanding the fact that most of Jesus’ teaching was in the context of everyday business life. The Archbishop’s revelation was quite an eye opener for me, so please READ ON .. as this week we look at what the Gospels teach us about divine marketing.

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 Moneyball: Can British golf repair its damaged reputation and learn from Tiger Woods' revival?

Golf has something of a long-standing image problem in Britain. Women are still banned from joining some private clubs, young people now prefer to take up cycling rather pick up a set of golf clubs and it has found it hard to shake off its reputation as the sport of snobs. The monumental comeback by Tiger Woods might be the catalyst this ailing pastime needs. After 11 years out of the golfing – at least – spotlight, the US star has lifted the 83rd Masters trophy. In the latest This is MoneyBall, the podcast that looks behind the action and into the business and the books, Georgie Frost is joined by Alistair Dunsmuir, editor of The Golf Business, for a chat about where golf goes next. Do incredible wins such as this really filter down to the grass roots? Possibly not but the sport is trying to evolve. The big opportunity is women – only 13% of UK golfers are women. ‘If you’re struggling financially, the obvious thing to do is to present yourself as a female friendly club’, says Alistair. Something’s happening in golf. Watch this space – or hole – as one in the business might say. Let’s hope it’s not a black one.
