Coalition’s pension shake-up is a major error

first_imgMonday 25 October 2010 8:26 pm whatsapp KCS-content The proposals for a new state pension are straight from the old Lib Dem handbook. The government wants to raise the state pension and pay it to everybody regardless of National Insurance contribution (NIC)?records.There are problems with the current system, but sustainable reform is possible. The contributory principle should be strengthened and the two state pensions merged into one. Individuals should earn an entitlement to a fixed amount of pension each year when they pay their NICs with that fixed amount being indexed until retirement. Once pension is accrued it should neither be added to nor taken away by the government. The pensions of all the elderly would then be determined by the entitlements they earned throughout their working lives. If a particular generation wanted higher pensions, then that generation would pay for it with higher NICs.The problem with the proposed “citizens’ pension” is that the pension will be decided by parliament and not be dependent on contributions. No fewer than 43 per cent of active voters are aged 55 or above. The government will thus not do anything to undermine the financial position of the elderly. A citizens’ pension will be forever increased under pressure from a greying electorate.A pension based on a contributory system also allows for contracting-out so that people can make private provision and have a refund of NICs. Sadly contracting out has been brought into disrepute over the last 13 years but its scope should be extended and not reduced.The Lib Dems say they do not like the contributory approach because carers and the disabled might be left out. Such people would not pay NICs and so they would not get a state pension. But if it is desired to fix this problem, the solution is easy: the government just gives credits to such people; it happens now and the system works.A citizens’ pension has long been a policy of the social democrat wing of the Liberal Democrats. They believe pensions should be decided according to democratic vote using some notion of “fairness”. The genuinely small-l liberal idea of people making private provision is anathema to them. Even Beveridge’s and Lloyd George’s contributory principle for the state pension scheme seems to be on its way out. The liberals in the Conservative party need to suggest other approaches. If they do not, the younger generation had better start voting before their taxes rise and rise.Philip Booth is the Institute of Economic Affairs’ editorial director.

It had previously expected a decline in sales as US operator Sprint Nextel Corp cuts spending on its iDen network. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

News Corp tries to woo EU over Sky

first_img NEWS Corp has submitted a series of proposals to the EU in a bid to ease concerns over its proposed takeover of BSkyB.It is understood Rupert Murdoch’s firm is willing to be bound by strict competition rules to avoid gaining an unfair advantage over rivals.However, company sources downplayed speculation Murdoch could sell key assets such as Sky News or the Times in order to force through the deal.EU regulators have extended the deadline on the first phase of their investigation of the deal to 22 December to consider the proposals.It will then decide whether to launch a full investigation into the firm that would last around four months.British communications regulator Ofcom is also reviewing the case on media plurality issues.News Corp is desperate to clear the regulatory hurdles as soon as possible, with its potential acquisition appreciating in value.News Corp, which also owns British newspapers the Sun and sister paper the News of the World, wants to buy the 61 per cent of BSkyB it does not already own after floating the firm in 1994.It has already had a bid of 700p a share rejected by the Sky board. The two sides have now agreed to halt negotiations until a deal in principle has been approved.Sky’s independent directors have said they would be prepared to support a bid of above 800p a share from News Corp.James Murdoch, News Corp’s European boss, has warned the UK could lose out on investment if the deal is blocked.

RPC Group to buy rival firm Superfos

first_imgThursday 16 December 2010 8:19 pm KCS-content PLASTIC packaging maker RPC Group said yesterday it planned to buy its Danish rival Superfos for €240m (£204.7m) in a deal likely to boost its market share and expand its operations into new countries.RPC said it would fund the acquisition through a rights issue and debt in the form of a new €130m term loan facility. RPC said it would issue five new shares for every eight existing shares at 143p a share – a 48 per cent discount to its Wednesday closing price. At 143p per share, RPC would raise around £88.8m, and approximately £85.3m net of expenses, it said. The deal is expected to close in early February 2011. RPC chief executive, Ron Marsh, said the deal would provide it with factories in Poland and Scandinavia and operations in Turkey and North Africa.“This reunites RPC with its nine sister operations on the continent and gives us a pan-European network from which we can much better supply our pan-European customers,” Marsh said.Superfos, which is owned by Nordic private equity firms IK Investment Partners and Ratos AB has over 1,300 employees. For the period ending 31 December 2009 the firm generated pre-tax profits of €22.9m on sales of €294.5m.RPC expects the acquisition to “materially enhance” its earnings per share in the first full financial year post buyout.CRISPIN WRIGHTROTHSCHILDSRPC Group is being advised by Crispin Wright, a managing director at Rothschild. Among some of his other clients are the Lloyds of London insurance underwriters Hardy and De La Rue, the currency printer, which he advised over its rejection of a £900m takeover bid from rival Obethur Technologies.Previously, Wright led a Rothschild team that helped the former brewer and pub group Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries, now known as Marston’s, fend off a hostile bid from rival pub group Pubmaster.He also advised Arriva on the bus and train group’s sale to German state railway Deutsche Bahn. Wright has advised airport operator BAA and is understood to have been involved in helping General Electric buy a quarter stake in Turkish bank Garanpi, and in selling IT services company Sema to Schlumberger for $2.5bn. He also advised P&O on its £3.5bn acquisition by Dubai Ports. whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img Share whatsapp RPC Group to buy rival firm Superfos Tags: NULLlast_img read more

But Ed Balls’ key arguments are disingenuous at best. Here City A.M. picks them apart. 1. High levels of public spending did not cause the financial crisis.“Do I think that… too much spending caused the crisis? Absolutely not.” A classic straw man argument. No-one says that overspending by Labour caused the crisis. But the IFS and OECD say the UK entered the crisis with one of the biggest structural deficits in the world, meaning it hit the country far harder.2. I agree with Mervyn I think [Mervyn King’s] been quite right not to raise interest rates. But it’s very important that he resists pressure – and we’ve had it from the Conservative party – to raise interest rates.Balls knows that the Bank of England will likely have to raise interest rates this year: this kind of statement suggests Labour will try to pin the blame on the Tories.3. Mervyn agrees with meI don’t think that Mervyn King in his heart of hearts really believes that crushing the economy in this way is the right way to get the economy moving. Simply untrue. King has gone to great lengths to back the government’s austerity measures, occasionally to the consternation of his colleagues. If King were to repeat his support, Balls would say he was only trying to reassure markets. last_img read more
