Welcome from Iain Martin
Welcome to CapX, the new service from the Centre for Policy Studies. In an era of information overload we select only the best writing, smart thinking and most relevant news that you might otherwise miss.
The service is available on the CapX app, which you can download in the app store, or on our website at www.capx.co. We are also on Twitter at @PopCapX. Every week day we will also send you short summaries of our top five stories, with links in case you want to read more.
As well as that, we are publishing exclusive articles commissioned for CapX readers from top writers.
Below you’ll find five exclusive commentaries from this week, from Deepak Lal on moving India away from statism, Patience Wheatcroft on investment, Tim Montgomerie on conservative leadership, Jeremy Jennings on France’s economic troubles and Guy Sorman on the case for popular capitalism. Following these are our CapX top picks for the week, using technology that scours over 3 million news sources.
