Rethinking capitalism: economics and policy for sustainable and inclusive growth
Western capitalism is in crisis. For decades investment has been falling, living standards have stagnated or declined, and inequality has risen dramatically. Economic policy has neither reformed the financial system nor restored stable growth. Climate change meanwhile poses increasing risks to future prosperity.
During this briefing, Prof Mariana Mazzucato will present her new book "Rethinking capitalism", which she has published recently together with some of the world’s leading economists, and discuss with Pawel Swieboda and the audience. The event will be followed by a reception.
