Free market capitalism is one of humanity’s greatest inventions and the greatest source of prosperity the world has ever seen. But this success has been costly. Capitalism is on the verge of destroying the planet and destabilizing society as wealth rushes to the top. The time for action is running short.
Join Leadership Now for a discussion with Rebecca Henderson, Harvard Professor and Economist, on her new book Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire.
Rebecca Henderson is a Leadership Now Academic Advisor.
"In a world on fire, status quo is not a great option. Rebecca Henderson rightfully argues for a refoundation of business and capitalism and offers thought-provoking ideas on what needs to be done to address some of the world's greatest challenges."―Hubert Joly, former chairman and CEO, Best Buy
