    • It was me thinking aloud and trying to establish a way in which capitalism could serve the people, rather than the other way around. What would it need to look like to halt the slide towards being completely discredited?

      It’s perhaps true to say my view has probably shifted since I wrote that. I’m less convinced the corruptors and controllers of capitalism can be tamed. It needs to serve the majority, not a small cabal of ultra wealthy pseudo Monarchies.

      • Well done for trying but (and probably the reason your view has changed) capitalism will always serve the rich – it’s always about power and money.
        Perhaps we should strive for a state and a community rather than individualism.

  1. Like the way you think… Sometimes I wonder if everyone walks around with their eyes shut to these issues or just refuses that there might be a better way of doing something without harming other people or the environment. Found your site by way of the Inforgraphics on the proportions of welfare spending and that is a story that needs to be told more often.

  2. Hi Jon, I think your blog is great, and just what is needed in the current climate. I am starting up a new project on welfare. I would love to tell you more about it and/or grab you for an interview? My e-mail is I hope to hear from you soon! Keep up the good work!
