In Stakeholding and New Labour , Rajiv Prabhakar examines two core claims. Firstly, that stakeholding furnishes the centre-left with a set of 'Third Way' principles of public policy that differ from those previously deployed by the Labour and Conservative parties. Secondly, Prabhakar contends that while explicit references to stakeholding have been scaled down by New Labour, the concept remains important for understanding the ideology and the policies of New Labour in government.
Rajiv Prabhakar is Lecturer in Personal Finance at The Open University and also teaches at UCL. His most recent book is 'The Assets Agenda' and he recently completed an ESRC knowledge transfer grant on assets, financial education and inequality.

Presentation by Rajiv Prabhakar.
- Mortgage interest payments are tax deductible, but not mortgage payments themselves
- Using 401(k) to buy a house: I found the following warning online
"It is possible to use a 401k to purchase a home, as long as you can prove that it would cost less in the long run to use your existing 401k equity than face the alternatives, such as mortgage insurance, a second mortgage or disadvantageous mortgage terms. However, the Internal Revenue Service makes it very difficult, and it is all but impossible to complete the maneuver without facing stiff penalties and taxes"
In this important new text, Rajiv Prabhakar reviews the evidence for different models of public services arguing that a combination of state, market and civil society provision is essential in the twenty-first century and drawing out the implications for different contexts, services and forms of provision.
