Adam Smith Institute: spot on as usual!

More Luncacy from the Government?

"Charity begins in schools" by Sarah Womack, Social Affairs Correspondent, The Daily Telegraph, 16 November:

"Plans to encourage a charitable culture among young people by giving every secondary school £500 to put towards its own charity bank account were described as ridiculous economics last night.

The Government's initiative, to be announced today, involves schools topping up the accounts with their own fund-raising efforts.

The schools will have responsibility for managing the fund held by the Charities Aid Foundation.

But the Adam Smith Institute, a free-market think-tank, said charity was about "giving away your own money, not someone else's - that is taxation".
