Abstract

Britain’s model of corporate capitalism and the increasing private ownership of capital lie at the root of growing inequality, writes Stewart Lansley; and so despite the political rhetoric against inequality, the problem can only be tackled through a “deconcentration” of wealth. Here, and drawing on examples used in his new book, he sets out the case for social wealth funds, the returns of which can be evenly shared across society. Through this model of collectively-owned wealth, the government can directly address the source of the socio-economic divide.
