BBC radio on #Occupy and the City of London Corporation

Posted by: Nick Shaxson in: Thoughts

An important contribution to the debate about this peculiar cross between a local authority and a grand Old Boys’ Network, which I’ve written plenty about. I’m among several people interviewed.

The long radio programme is highly recommended. Click here or here.

It is accompanied by a really interesting BBC story (text) about the City of London Corporation and the gigantic Crossrail project, which will make the UK financial services sector even more powerful.

Postscript: there is a much, much, much better way to pay for Crossrail: land value taxes.
