Full Commentary

No country has the right to dominate global affairs, control the destiny of others, or keep advantages in development all to itself.’

Xi Jinping (October 2021)

If you were listening to BBC Radio 4 just before 9 am on Sunday, you'd have heard a charming piece about swallows, which started with, ‘They have no borders’. In contrast to humanity, for whom migration and international travel face so many restrictions, birds in the wild can indeed enjoy total freedom.

Carving the world into nation states has become an obsession for the human race over the last few millennia, but whether it will serve any purpose in the next remains to be seen. Communication, technology and international trade are combining to break down the barriers between nations, and language differences are being rapidly resolved by Artificial Intelligence. As populations merge and blend, this convergence is becoming increasingly challenging for those reactionists who seek to close borders.

In these circumstances, we are fortunate indeed to have sport to help us find the difficult balance between national identity and human convergence; football is one of the best in this respect, where we see teams comprised of so many different ethnicities representing so many different countries. The Euros have been particularly effective in this regard, reflecting the significant level of migration which has already blended into European populations.

Over the next few weeks this will be followed by the Paris Olympics, which will also enable us to celebrate the 100th anniversary of that real celebration of the modern era in 1924, the ‘Chariots of Fire’ Olympics.

If we are to establish a more equitable society — supporting the individual human achievement so vital for democratic capitalism, but at the same time based on egalitarian principles — it is also vital to provide the necessary academic rigour to support its propositions.

King’s College, Cambridge, in partnership with the University's Faculty of Economics, has established the SHARE research project (Supporting Human Achievement through Research based on Egalitarian Principles) with a four-year post-doctoral research fellowship. Areas of research include inter-generational wealth transfer; human capital (improving inequality and productivity through education and training); disintermediation; and mass ownership.

Share Alliance is being established as a registered charity to support and provide oversight for the research project.

On Friday 14th April '23 its first half-day conference took place, concentrating on two leading propositions: inter-generational rebalancing and 'Stock for Data'. It was also an opportunity to hear about underlying principles and its planning for the future, and there was a panel session for general discussion.

Video recordings of all five sessions are available via the Share Alliance website. Presentation slides are also available here


When you just need some relaxing background music for reading, writing or entertaining, Share Music complements our speech programmes with a flow of instrumental folk music. However these speech programmes are always at hand via Share Sounds, where there's also an online slide display to highlight some of the best.

Information on tracks played is shown both on the 'Listen Live' tab and on our mobile app: but please note one of our latest additions: 'Resonant Futures' by The Imaginaries.

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.
Thought for the Week: Debt is the Achilles' Heel of Democracy

The scale of the nominal national debt is staggering, but when you add in unfunded pension schemes (state and public sector) and HM Treasury indemnities to the Bank of England it places a heavy load indeed on the new Chancellor. Her early career at the Bank of England and HBOS will have prepared Rachel Reeves well to tackle this challenge in her new role as Chancellor of the Exchequer; and she will be well aware of the heavy burden being placed on younger generations. Background music: 'Burden Laid Down' by The Westerlies

Thought for the Week: Egalitarian Capitalism should replace Socialism

Most of us believe in personal freedom within a fairer society, but that combination isn't currently on offer from any of the political parties seeking your vote. It is, however possible — but you need to start young. Reducing the voting age to 16 might help a bit, but a more egalitarian way forward for capitalism calls for starter capital accounts and incentivised learning for disadvantaged young people. Then, you need to do something about wealth concentration brought about by the tech giants. Background music: 'Freedom' by Dan Lebowitz

Thought for the Week: One Human Family

Sport is not only a good way to celebrate national identity but also a great way to celebrate human convergence; football is one of the best in this respect, where we see teams comprised of so many different ethnicities representing so many different countries. Just as regional identity is something to celebrate within countries, so also is national identity something to celebrate in a global context. But this doesn't mean turning countries into fortresses, and the United Nations needs to play a more prominent role in converging governance. Background music: 'India Fuse' by French Fuse

Modern Mindset: Stephen Muers on the UK's Housing Issues

Adam Cox is joined by Stephen Muers, the CEO of Better Society Capital. Following the fallout of the UK general election, the two discuss the recent speech given by Rachel Reeves about new housing. Stephen also tells Adam more about Better Society and what they do. https://bettersocietycapital.com/

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: AI and Geospatial/Spatial Technology

Dan Ridsdale, head of technology at Edison Group, looks at the state of play with AI, a structural growth trend, where only the companies on the hardware side stand at a premium. In looking at where the revenue from AI will come, investors need to consider what sort of companies will benefit from its use and which have the best relationships with the AI providers. He also discusses geospatial and spatial technology, an area in which the UK excels. As people are not paying this area of growth enough attention, shares in companies such as 1Spatial are not standing at a premium.

This Is Money:  Have you got financial confidence - and is it the key to getting wealthier?

Do you feel financially confident? When it comes to budgeting, saving, investing, and building your pension, are you clueless, comfortable, or cracking on? A piece of research this week by Moneybox claimed that being financially confident could add £67,000 to your lifetime wealth – on average those with confidence were worth £145,000 on average, compared to £78,000 for the unconfident. But what does being financially confident actually mean and how can you get there? Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look at how to boost your financial confidence and whether the tips to do so could work. Plus, a week into a new government and with a planned pensions review looming, the team look at what Labour could mean for our retirement savings. Meanwhile, investors seem to be cheering Labour taking charge and this week investment giant BlackRock flagged Britain’s ‘relative political stability’ and cheap stock market, so does that mean good future returns? Investing a large sum was on the mind of a reader who asked This is Money an unusual question: I’m inheriting £10 million, should I set up an investment trust? So, what is the answer to that? And finally, a new report has revealed Britain’s best places for customer service – did your favourite make the list?

The Bigger Picture: The General Election, Starmer at NATO & the future of Biden and the Tories

Mike Indian analyses the General Election result, astonishing for its massive majority on a tiny vote share and the way it exposed the oddities of the UK election system, particularly with Reform getting more votes than the Lib Dems — but just a fraction of their seats. With Sir Kier Starmer probably only having a brief honeymoon period, Mike hopes they will underpromise and overdeliver. With Starmer at the NATO summit, will Labour deliver the promised defence increase in this dangerous period? He explains why Joe Biden should step aside and looks at the future for the Tories, currently facing electoral irrelevance.

Thought for the Week: Action required for Default CTF Pay-out

The core of the problem with unclaimed, adult-owned Child Trust Funds (of which there are over £2 billion waiting to be claimed) is with accounts opened by HMRC. That's why The Share Foundation has proposed a 'default withdrawal at 21' process, based on the young person's National Insurance number. Danny Kruger MP took part in the CTF conference in Westminster on Tuesday 5th March, and two weeks later in a Westminster Hall CTF debate, and supported this initiative which could release £1/4 billion each year to help these young and predominantly low-income young adults. Background music: 'Waiting' by Andrew Langdon

Business of Film: A Quiet Place – Day One, Kinds of Kindness & Beverly Hills Cop – Axel F

Cineworld plans to close 25% of its cinemas and James Cameron-Wilson says box office is down 26%, though ‘Inside Out 2’ is riding high with £40.1m, making it the biggest hit of 2024. Prequel ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ is #2 but, while accomplished and watchable, it doesn't have the coiled tension of the first two films. Despite loving films of Yorgos Lanthimos like ‘The Favourite’ and ‘Poor Things’, James was not enamoured of ‘Kinds of Kindness’, an anthology movie with Emma Stone which is weird without being wonderful and a case of the emperor's new clothes, with no narrative cohesion. 40 years on, ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’, out on Netflix, creaks in all the wrong places with Eddie Murphy looking the same but with his manic energy diminished. So by the numbers, it's not worth your time.

Motley Fool Money: "Two Things Can Be True" (10/7)

Host - Robert Brokamp; Guest - Megan Gorman

There's a new way of trying to prevent rhino poaching by making horns radioactive. And there are some impressive crowdfunded smart binoculars.

The Hypnotist: Hypnosis for a Healthy Relationship with Alcohol

If alcohol is a need, a compulsion, then it easily turns into an addiction. That can turn into arguments, embarrassment and inappropriate behaviour. But if it's a choice, it's possible to build a more healthy relationship with alcohol. Adam Cox invites you to explore regression to a point when you were without alcohol, and move towards it being that matter of choice, not necessity.

The Bigger Picture: Milei lecturing the WEF, plummeting EV car sales & the truth about Gen Z

Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University explains why he so enjoyed new Argentine President Javier Milei lecturing the great and good of the World Economic Forum about libertarian and Austrian economics, attacking corporatism and socialism. He feels Milei could be the most consequential politician economically-speaking for many years. He also looks at falling EV car sales, lamenting the way in which politicians set goals for achieving their hobbyhorses irrespective of scientific progress and consumer demand. And he is fascinated by a meeting between journalist John Humphreys and members of Gen Z, which showed them to be different to the popular perception.

The Bigger Picture: The King's Speech for Christmas Day

Unabridged and without comment from Share Radio, here's the King's Christmas message as broadcast on 25th December '23.

The Financial Outlook: The outlook for 2024 and Gregg's

Neil Shah of Edison Group feels that the bond market has now normalised whch could help the equity market, where many companies have stabilised after a tough year, although he points out that the US market looks peaky. He admires the outstanding quarter year results from Gregg's. The business appears to be in the sweet spot where value is important to customers with a healthy balance sheet and a great management team. It pays a yield but there is still plenty of growth left, although the rating clearly anticipates this.

Thought for the Week: Don't waste the Child Trust Fund harvest!

“The [Child Trust Fund] scheme has been closed to new entrants for over 12 years. In this time HMRC has been focusing resources on evaluating and improving existing schemes. We will continue to keep the need to evaluate old schemes under review.” So said Andrew Griffith MP, Economic Secretary to HM Treasury in reply to a parliamentary question from John Ashworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. But this is not an 'old scheme' — there is currently over £1.7 billion sitting in mature accounts belonging to over 900,000 mainly low-income young adults throughout the UK who don't know anything about their good fortune! Their Child Trust Fund harvest is seeing too little action at present: but it's not too late to get it sorted, and the current focus from the National Audit Office and Public Accounts Committee will certainly help.

Thought for the Week: Solving the AI Challenge to Wealth, Control and Intelligence

The huge take-up of ChatGPT over recent weeks has brought the challenge of Artificial Intelligence into sharp relief. As the Chief Executive of its creator, OpenAI, said in one of his blogs, 'Artificial Intelligence will bring unimaginable wealth but, unless something changes, most of us will get none of it. We need a radical solution'. Conventional wisdom sees Universal Basic Income as the way through this dilemma, but this will only bring us more state intermediation and human subservience. We can put forward a better solution, by enabling all to share in the wealth that technology brings and to play their part in its future governance.
Background music: 'Digital Solitude' by Silent Partner

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The case for investment trusts

Jonathan Davis, editor of the Investment Trusts Handbook, tells Simon Rose what makes investment trusts special and why investors should consider their merits.

He discusses the yields on alternative assets (including renewable energy and even music royalties) and how trusts can continue paying dividends even in bad years. The handbook, from Harriman House, is available in hardbook or free as an ebook (https://tinyurl.com/mt69fc24).

Lord John Lee has become a champion for people investing in the stock market over recent years: he's written three books on investing, he's a patron of ShareSoc, the society for individual shareholders in the United Kingdom, and he's now challenging Government, broadcasters and regulators to encourage a much higher profile for investing in shares on TV and radio. Gavin Oldham meets with John to discuss the background to his initiative and his proposals for change; and they go on to consider how customer share ownership can be expanded, how to encourage more active participation in shareholder voting, and how to improve financial education.

The Bigger Picture: A World of Individual Opportunity - the Vision of Egalitarian Capitalism

Imagine a world in which everyone has a stake in the great tech firms that serve them each day, and where dividends are gradually replacing wages to provide regular income for everyone, as work becomes scarcer as a result of automation? Imagine a world where every young person not only has a small inheritance with which to start their adult life, but also the opportunity to build its value by learning life skills? Simon Rose is taking a well-earned break this week, so we’re taking the opportunity to bring you a talk given Gavin Oldham in August to the leading City of London think-tank Z/Yen.

 Economist Questions: A ‘Good’ and ‘Efficient’ Workplace: Tricky Balancing Act?
Research into workplace productivity and management practice is often focused on the links between ‘Good’ and ‘Efficient’ practices. ‘Good’ covers employee-friendly policies; for instance, those providing opportunities for better Work Life Balance. In contrast, ‘Efficient’ practice includes the use of KPIs, setting clear performance expectations and tackling underperformance where it is identified. In this episode Peter Urwin and Professor Richard Saundry discuss this, drawing on their own understanding as researchers and experiences as line managers. The operational reality is that managers hold a position between the interests of their organisation and those who work for them – how do they balance the (often competing) need to create both efficient and good workplaces?
VIDEO: Tracking down £1bn of missing Child Trust Fund cash

Every child in the UK born between 1 Sept 2002 and 2 Jan 2011 has a Child Trust Fund (CTF). But one child in six has lost contact with the money.

He talks through the CTF, how to track an account down, and what a child can and can’t do with the money.
