Speaker: Gavin Oldham OBE (The Share Foundation)
While capitalism drives wealth creation and promotes individual endeavour and creativity, in its current form it is also driving huge inequalities in the distribution of wealth and assets. Political solutions to resolve inequality, particularly enforced redistribution of wealth through taxation or other means, are mainly driven by state intermediation and in many cases have resulted in excessive public debt and social discord. However, doing nothing to address the problem will continue to exacerbate the largest, most intractable economic problem which humanity continues to face.
A more egalitarian system of capitalism, one that empowers and provides individuals from all walks of life with the opportunities to fulfil their potential, would offer an economic solution to addressing the problem.
The key elements of this approach will include:
- Disintermediation – individual empowerment
- Inter-generational wealth transfer
- Mass equity participation
- Human capital – reducing inequality and improving productivity through education and training.
Come and hear more about a wholly new approach to achieving social justice while at the same time complementing and celebrating individual human enterprise, at the seminar at 4.05 pm in the Sustainable Investing Room.
