Ethical Capitalism: Worth a Try?
Thursday 23 January
19:00 – 20:30
Open Forum - Swiss Alpine School (SAMD), Auditorium
Capitalism lifted 1 billion people out of poverty in 20 years but, today, society is discontent. Some believe the neo-liberal capitalist model needs shaking up, and that regulators, supervisors and corporate governance managers have failed those they are meant to protect. Western economic and social crises are pointing to the bankruptcy of the capitalist model. Yet the question remains: What is the alternative?
- Is the ethos of capitalism unethical? What are its economic and policy structures?
- Who needs to lead the effort for society to act for the common good?
