Description

Author Angela Cummine gives a brief overview of her book on Sovereign Wealth Funds: what they are, and who actually owns them. Dr Cummine then explains some of the political disagreements that can occur when the state sees itself as the primary owner of sovereign wealth, rather than the agent of the people, who she argues, are the principal-owners of these assets. It is citizens therefore, who must enjoy meaningful control over and benefit from these assets. If sovereign funds are managed and used in a way that respects this vision of them as community funds holding citizens' wealth, they could be used for a whole range of laudable public policy goals, for example, to plug budget deficits and to tackle economic inequality.

Ernest Frost

Description

Name: Ernest Frost Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 27 August 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-75-Ernest Frost The Shields Daily News for 29 August reports 1905 reports: ?SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST A SHIP?S STEWARD AT NORTH SHIELDS. STEALING AND SMUGGLING GOODS.. At North Shields Police Court today Ernest Frost (39), a steward, belonging to Germany, was charged with landing from the screw steamer Astrakhan 7lbs of coffee and 10lbs of tea, while in the Albert Edward Dock on the 28th inst., with intent to avoid payment of duty on the same. He was further charged with having assaulted Wm. Joseph Smith and Joseph Phealen, customs officers. Mr Hogg prosecuted on behalf of the Customs. Wm. Joseph Smith, preventive officer for the customs, said that on the night in question he was on patrol duty at the Albert Edward Dock when he observed two men with a cart, accompanied by the defendant. Witness went up to the defendant and asked him if he had anything liable to duty on the cart. He replied in the negative and he then asked him to open the bags. There was nothing in the first bag, but in the second he found 10lbs of tea and 7lbs of coffee. He asked him if duty had been paid on these and he replied that there had not and that they were part of the ship?s stores. He then requested the defendant to take them back to the ship, and they were on their way back, when the defendant jumped off the cart and struck witness twice in the face, knocking him to the ground. While there he kicked witness on the thigh. Another officer came to his assistance and he was assaulted. The defendant was not drunk. John Phealan, Customs officer, spoke to going to the last witness?s assistance, when the defendant struck witness on the forehead and kicked him on the shins. The accused said he was drunk and did not know what he was doing.
