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.

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.

IEA: What's next for Uber and the Gig Economy?
We’re joined by Diego Zuluaga, Head of Tech Policy at the IEA, and Digital Officer Madeline Grant, as they discuss Uber and the gig economy in the light of last week’s decision from TfL not to reissue Uber’s licence. The pair discuss the ruling – how it came about, and take a look at some of TfL’s motivations. They also explore what the ruling means in practice – for the 40,000 drivers who earn a living from the platform, for the app’s 3.5 million users in London, and for the broader future of tech and innovation in Britain.
