Mariana Mazzucato and Raghuram Rajan talk economic inequality and its impact on global pandemic recovery.
Behind every protest and every election debate around the world, an underlying theme seems to be rising anger about inequality and a sense that capitalism itself is broken. But what can be done to fix it? What can societies do to reverse some of its inherent problems? And how should this inform governments and policymakers as they shape pandemic recovery?
On this episode of Global Reboot, FP editor in chief Ravi Agrawal interviews Mariana Mazzucato, a professor at University College London and author of Mission Economy: A Moonshot Guide to Changing Capitalism, and Raghuram Rajan, a professor at the University of Chicago, former governor of the Reserve Bank of India, and former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund.
