Egalitarian Capitalism
One of the most striking developments in the past few years has been the disenfranchisement felt by many towards business and politics, particularly among the young, to the extent that it’s become a threat to the very continuation of the free market and capitalism. Gavin Oldham, Chairman of The Share Centre and of The Share Foundation, joins our host Simon Rose to discuss a set of proposals he has developed intended to introduce a more egalitarian form of capitalism, giving everyone in our society the opportunity to benefit from wealth creation enabled by the free market.

This is Money: Can a nudge make you richer?
On this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Rachel Rickard Straus and Georgie Frost take a look at Professor Thaler’s work, his prize, behavioural economics and the whole nudge idea. Does this all really work? Behavioural economists believe a gentle nudge in the right direction can make you richer and over recent years they have managed to win the ears of governments around the world – including the UK’s. This week one of the thinkers who helped spread the word on behavioural economics, Professor Richard Thaler, won a Nobel Prize for economics. In the old world of economics textbooks, people behaved perfectly rationally and made the right choices. In the real world, of course, we don’t. We make irrational decisions that fly in the face of economic theory all the time. Yet, our irrational behaviour can be an asset. It means that we can be nudged into making the best choices. Professor Thaler’s catch-all advice is whether you’re a business or a government, if you want people to do something, make it easy. In Britain, one example adopted by the Government has been pensions. Instead of getting people to opt into a pension, we’re now automatically enrolled and then offered the chance to opt out. It’s now easier to have a pension than not to. Unsurprisingly, more people now save into pensions.

IEA: How Would Unilateral Free Trade Work in Practice
On this podcast, you’ll hear an update from our Brexit Unit, run by the IEA’s chief economist Julian Jessop. Coming up, digital Officer Madeline Grant discusses the concept of unilateral free trade with Julian – a policy he thinks should be considered during the Brexit negotiations. Julian gives a comprehensive explanation of what unilateral free trade would mean in practice – and how after Brexit, the UK will be free to set its own trade rules and tariff barriers. Julian and Madeline also discuss the potential disadvantages, especially in the short term, of such a policy – mainly the disadvantages to British producers, who will face increased competition, with no guarantee it’ll be easier to export to other parts of the world.
