Purpose and the future for capitalism
09.29.2020 - By Inside the Strategy Room
We hear from two award-winning American economists about how capitalism and corporate purpose could evolve to more broadly benefit society, especially in this current time of crisis. Yuval Atsmon, a senior partner in our London office, spoke with professor Anne Case and Nobel prize winner, Angus Deaton, about their new book, ‘Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism’. Their book, which has been short-listed for the 2020 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year, highlights the social and economic forces negatively impacting the working class, which they argue fosters inequality and undermines society.
