Rethinking capitalism, starting in the classroom
Tuesday, January 20 at 19:30 GMT (2:30pm EST):
Western capitalism - it's been blamed by its critics for financial instability, worsening climate change, and global inequality. After traditional economists were caught off guard by the last financial crisis, a growing movement is now calling on universities to add more diverse economic studies - including those that take a critical approach to free markets - into their curricula. What are the alternatives, and could a diversified study of economics help create a more just and environmentally sustainable system? Join the conversation at 1930GMT.
