Rebel Economics

As the world slips into recession, possibly even depression, Covid-19 has revealed the design flaws in our global economy.For decades, the conventional wisdom has been that there’s no problem the invisible hand of the market can’t fix. And while a relentless pursuit of growth at all costs has delivered prosperity for some, the gulf between the haves and the have-nots is at historic levels.Will this once-in-a-century pandemic create a once-in-a-generation opportunity for a real shift in our economic systems? If so, what should that look like?Six years ago, Ian Goldin predicted the next financial crisis would be caused by a pandemic. We talk with Ian about how we got here, and how to get out of it.Then we meet renegade economist, Kate Raworth, whose big idea - people and planet living in harmony “inside the doughnut” - may have found its moment.Reimagine is a new podcast series about people who are inventing the future.
