Claire Fox, David Bowden and Rob Lyons discuss the week's news
In this edition of the Podcast of Ideas the team ask whether, with Tata Steel’s operations in Britain haemorrhaging £1million a day, renationalisation is really the answer. Instead, should we be demanding investment in new and dynamic industries rather than propping up zombie sectors of the economy? With the release of the Panama Papers making the not-so-startling revelation that the super rich sometimes avoid paying tax, the team ask why the rich feel the need to sit on their capital in the first place rather than using it productively. And finally, there’s analysis of the latest in the Brexit referendum campaign including the government’s latest controversial move: using public money to peddle the Remain line.
