It’s the most successful economic system to have ever existed, but capitalism is in danger of destroying itself — and our world. In this talk, Professor Rebecca Henderson will get to the heart of what’s wrong with modern capitalism and lay out a pragmatic roadmap for how business can help to catalyze the systemic change we need to build a capitalism that works for everyone.

A conversation moderated by Provost Richard M. Locke, Schreiber Family Professor of Political Science and International and Public Affairs, will follow the talk.
