Book Review: Redeeming Capitalism by Kenneth Barnes
Capitalism has rarely been less popular. In his new book, Redeeming Capitalism, Kenneth Barnes discusses the moral failings that need to be tackled if the system - which has been a force for much good - is to survive. In a conversation with Share Radio's Simon Rose touching on debt, conspicuous consumption and the changed nature of work, Kenneth Barnes suggests how capitalism can once more become our servant, not our master.

Making Goodness Fashionable
Can we make goodness fashionable once more? Colin Bloom is founder of The Wilberforce Alliance, invoking the spirit of the man behind Britain's abolition of slavery, to inspire and equip people destined for public life. It is his hope that the coarseness and intemperance of politics and public life in general can, over time, be reversed. In conversation with Simon Rose, he discusses his hope that the Wilberforce Alliance can, within 15 years, produce 100,000 people embodying Wilberforce's values.

Reversing the steepening decline of UK infrastructure
The UK's worsening infrastructure is making us ever less competitive. Dan Lewis is the author of a report on the problem for the Institute of Directors. He explains what we should be doing about broadband and the 5G rollout as well as calling for digitised railway signalling throughout the country, improved data capture on roads and greater use of buses and coaches. Transportation for the Northern Powerhouse, he believes, should avoid the expense of land purchases and going underground with tunnels for Maglevs or Hyperloops.
