Show Summary Details


This chapter looks at the conceptual support for the RTB, and considers the nature of conservatism and how this links to property ownership. This shows how the RTB fits into an established set of ideas on the role of property ownership, as well as how this is connected to personal responsibility and self-reliance. The discussion on responsibility is extended into one on the concept of really private finance, which is used to capture the way one seeks to control and use his own resources to meet his own needs, expectations, and aspirations.

Keywords: conceptual support; RTB; conservatism; property ownership; personal responsibility; self-reliance
