Are Economists Blocking Progress on Climate Change?

Dutch economist Servaas Storm: “progress on climate change demands collective action, both between nations and within nations. Questions of who is paying the cost and who is getting the benefits are critical. We need coordination, direct steering and guidance of investment, research and develpment, along with innovation and mechanisms for burden sharing. The effort can only work if it is inclusive, democratic and fair: the strongest shoulders must carry the largest burden.”

Socialism in Our Time?

“Bhaskar Sunkara […] has released a new book just in time for the 2020 presidential election season called The Socialist Manifesto: The Case for Radical Politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality (Basic Books, 2019). In the book, Sunkara makes the case for why a socialist economy, government, and society is necessary, and what it might look like. He also provides an in-depth historical look at the development of socialist intellectual thought over the past 150 years. Our Economics Editor Aaron Freedman speaks with him about the past, present, and future of socialist economics.”

Why We Need Diversity and Pluralism in Economics

“In a series of interviews—part of our larger series ‘Diversity and Pluralism in Economics: Problems and Solutions‘—we explore different opinions about diversity in economics and its interaction with pluralism. We start with a first round of interviews with Alicia Bárcena Ibarra, Claudia Goldin, and Maria Cristina Marcuzzo. […] All three respondents think that a greater presence of women and members of ethnic minorities in economics would enrich the range of research perspectives in the field. But they have different views on what pluralism is and means to economics and diversity.”

Wall Street and the Behavioral Science of Making Culture Ethical

Ethical Systems recently caught up with Engler to hear how he sees the way behavioral science can help organizations, particularly in the financial sector, assess and reform their cultures to make them more ethical. Engler published a book on this topic a couple of months ago, titled Remaking Culture on Wall Street: A Behavioral Science Approach for Building Trust from the Bottom Up.

Free Exchange: Paul Collier on the Future of Capitalism

“This week’s guest on Free Exchange, the CapX podcast, is Sir Paul Collier, Professor of Economics at the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford. […] His latest book, The Future of Capitalism, deals with what he thinks has gone wrong not in a failed African state, but here in the West. And he thinks our political and economic system isn’t living up to the promises we make about it.”
