With such a notable guru now in charge as Business Secretary (last week this was Lord Mandelson) it is interesting to note that in a forward to a recent book The Case for a New People's Budget he backs the introduction of the use of land value for 'reducing the disparity between the rich and the poor'. The book has insights on the effects on farming, business, utilities, poverty & welfare, and banking - with a practical route plan for achieving this enlightened reform.
The City is reported to be 'right to fear the arrival of Cable' - which is probably a good sign for all of the rest of us, on what he might be planning in his given role. But watch out for his, and other top Lib-Dems' influence on wider areas of policy such as taxation. It is probably a relief to the City that he is not at the Treasury, but look how far Lib-Dem leverage has got them in only one week. Read the book and prepare. Book available at above link.
