theweek.co.uk The price of renationalisation Oct 14, 2019 James Ashford Labour’s plans branded ‘eye-watering’ by business lobby facebook twitter google+ linkedin email Dan Kitwood/Getty Images Jeremy Corbyn launches his rail nationalisation plans in 2015 Labour’s plans for the renationalisation of British utilities would cost an “eye-watering” amount, according to a new report from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI). See related Rail nationalisation: how Labour's plan would work The pros and cons of nationalisation The lobby group, which represents around 190,000 UK businesses, says the cost of taking public services into state control would be equivalent of all income tax paid by UK citizens in a year, the BBC reports. And national debt would stand to rise by 10.7% as a result, the CBI claims. But a Labour Party spokesperson dismissed the projections as “incoherent scaremongering”;. –––;––̵1;––R11;––211;–––––––––––;––̵1;––R11;–– For more political analysis - and a concise, refreshing and balanced take on the week’s news agenda - try The Week magazine. Get your first six issues free –––;––̵1;––R11;––211;–––––––––––;––̵1;––R11;–– What does Labour want to renationalise? Labour wants to take water and energy utilities, train firms and the Royal Mail into public ownership. The CBI based their calculations on renationalising Royal Mail, rail vehicles, the national grid, and 16 water companies, nine of which also deal with sewerage. How much will it cost? The CBI puts the cost of renationalising these major utilities at a minimum of £196bn - which would take the UK national debt to levels not seen since the 1960s, at 94% of GDP. The group points out that this upfront cost is almost as high as the combined £141bn health budget and £61bn spent on education. “The price tag for Labour’s renationalisation plans is beyond eye-watering,” said the CBI’s chief economist, Rain Newton-Smith. She continued: “There are so many other genuine priorities for public spending right now, from investing in our young people to the transition to low carbon economy and connecting our cities and communities. “These issues are what keep businesses up at night and what they want to see the government get on with addressing. Nationalisation would waste time, energy and public money.” However, the Institute for Fiscal Studies said last week that focusing on the upfront cost of taking utilities into public ownership was the wrong approach. “Economically what matters is whether these assets would be better managed by the public or the private sector,” the independent research organisation argues. What has Labour said? Labour has accused the CBI of making a series of arbitrary, exaggerated and misguided assumptions, says The Guardian. The lobby group applied a 30% premium to the asset values of private firms, but Labour has dismissed the resulting figures as unrealistic. Shadow chancellor John McDonnell has previously said that Parliament would decide what the state paid to renationalise assets. He also said that such a move would ultimately cost the public nothing, because ownership of assets would save money. Responding to the CBI report, Labour pointed to the popularity of the proposed measures among British people. A party spokesperson said: “It is disappointing that the CBI seems incapable of having a grown-up conversation about public ownership - which is hugely popular, and common across Europe. “It sadly reveals that they are more interested in protecting shareholders than in creating a fair economy.”

Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492, and Columbus Day 2019 is on Monday, October 14, 2019. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century, but did not become a federal holiday until 1937. For many, the holiday is a way of both honoring Columbus’ achievements and celebrating Italian-American heritage. But throughout its history, Columbus Day and the man who inspired it have generated controversy, and many alternatives to the holiday have proposed since the 1970s including Indigenous Peoples' Day.
