A few features of the #energy market that Gordon Brown (and his many fans here) don't seem to understand... 🙄

1. Energy suppliers are not the ones making big profits. None of his ideas - including #nationalisation - would reduce the prices they have to pay in global markets.
2. The Ofgem price cap is already based on an assessment of the ‘actual costs’ of supplying energy, including a small profit margin. As such, the cap already forces suppliers to ‘keep prices down’...
3. North Sea oil and gas profits are already taxed at a headline rate of 65%. Raising this even further - in an ad hoc way, and retrospectively - would send a terrible signal to all businesses thinking of investing in the UK.

A thread on the #Labour Labour Party's #BroadbandForAll policy. There are three elements: 1; #zero price #freebroadband, (2) #Nationalisation and (3) #monopoly.
Zero Price. One argument for zero price is that there are positive externalities and network effects for bringing everybody to the same high level service. A second is And that leaving poorer citizens and lower margin business behind is less inclusive.
Clearly charging those who can afford would make it less costly to the taxpayer, and be less regressive, but it is messy. But surely over time that would emerge? And behavioural insights might help design 100% take up with mostly positive pricing.
