Did you know for instance, that investing in sustainable businesses over the last few years now delivers equal, or even better returns than conventional investments*? Whether you want to support businesses working to reverse climate change, ensure access to clean water for everyone, give people a head-start with a micro-loan or encourage gender diversity and equality in the boardroom – you can do this.

The Share Radio Interview: The Internet of Things
We’re becoming increasingly reliant on technology of all kinds, divulging more and more of our most personal details online and on internet-connected devices. But are we investing in suitable safeguarding measures to protect ourselves against hacking? Well, apparently not. Research from cyber-security experts, nCipher Security, has revealed that as more and more things become connected to the internet – from wireless home sensor networks, to smartphones, to wearable tech – we’re leaving ourselves wide open to cyber-attacks. In this episode of the Share Interview, Vice President of Global Distribution from nCipher Security, Peter Carlisle, joins Vicky Sayers to offer his advice.

NEF: The Rent is Too High
More and more of us are renting for longer – not by choice, but by necessity. In cities especially, more people are renting into their thirties, forties and beyond, sometimes raising children in rented flats with no long-term security. Rents are sky high. Saving for a deposit can take a decade or longer. And for many people, property ownership seems unachievable. But what if we could do something about it? Could rent controls be the answer? To help answer this question, Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Hanna Wheatley, researcher at the New Economics Foundation and co-author of a NEF report on rent controls, and Eva Freeman, private renter and member of the London Renters Union.

Economist Questions: Women Vs Capitalism - Why We Can’t Have It All in a Free Market Economy

Economist Questions: Women Vs Capitalism - Why We Can’t Have It All in a Free Market Economy
Peter Urwin is joined by economist Vicky Pryce to talk about her latest book, discussing gender equality. Vicky argues we cannot rely on the free market to bring about gender equality. In theory we might expect discrimination to be short-lived in competitive markets, as it is an inefficient use of resources; this is clearly not happening, however, and Vicky makes a strong case for more forceful intervention to rectify the market failures that perpetuate gender inequality. An inherent short-termism in the capitalist system, a continuing level of support for motherhood that is insufficient, and various conscious/unconscious forms of bias all contribute to this failure of markets. The proposed solutions are radical, but without significant public intervention we will continue to waste vast amounts of female potential.
