The Opening Interview: Material abundance and failed Utopias
The man who inspired Biden's economy
The miracle inventions since the 19th century brought us out of dire poverty, each generation has doubled the capabilities of the one before. Join the economist who inspired Biden's economic plans, professor at Berkley and previous Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Brad DeLong, to explore why 21st century capitalism has failed to lead to the Utopia we were promised and hoped for.
DeLong will explore why capitalism has transformed the world but has not delivered on the utopian ideals of the past; showing instead how it has left us with global warming, economic depression, uncertainty and inequality.
