    Why Britain really is biased against the young

    The biggest lie about democracy is that it means rule by the people. Yes, that might be the literal meaning (the kratos of the demos). But what it actually means is rule by the people who can be bothered. That’s why, for example, the latest YouGov polls here in the UK are even more devastating for the Labour Party than they outwardly appear...

    Why the Government is right to tax the high street

    There was shock, horror and outrage today as it was revealed that business rates for Amazon will fall as those for high street retailers rise. CVS, a company which specialises in estimating rents and rates, tells us that Amazon will pay £148,000 a year less in rates under the pending revaluation – even as high street independents see rises...

    Has Trump been tamed?

    Remember the end of the West? That was what many commentators (including me) foretold when Donald Trump won the American presidency in November. Causes for alarm abounded. The candidate’s own heedless and contemptuous remarks about allies and alliances; the exotic and eccentric characters at the top of his campaign; the stench of Russian...

    How brands make the economic world go round

    Market economies depend very heavily upon trust. As I sit here in this café, I am drinking tea someone made me. I trust that the person that made the tea has not sought to poison me, has not made the water so scalding I will be injured, has used cow’s milk instead of soya. I trust the Bank of England not to have suddenly withdrawn most of...
