    Yaron Brook assumes that the capitalists who have left Britain are “entrepreneurs” as those who invest in the production of wealth but most of them will be financiers whose connection with wealth production is pretty precarious. They are not even employers of workers who produce wealth. I see in fact that his own business was “asset management” ie investing the riches of the rich on the stock exchange, etc. So a financier himself.

    According to this he is a follower of Ayn Rand and so a bit of a nutter:

    I wonder if we could interest him in a further exchange with Paddy via Zoom?

    His body language betrayed his scepticism about some of the points Paddy was making.

    We won’t convince Brook but we could widen our audience base.

    Firstly, excellent job, Paddy-Joe, if that is your real name. 😉

    The thing that struck me the most about the broadcast was how pundits keep telling us that rich people/entrepreneurs create wealth. This falsehood is repeated so often, without challenge, that it has become accepted as fact. It was heartwarming to hear on tv that it’s us who produce wealth not them. Maybe Paddy could have his own slot on GB News!
