Can A Different Market Economy Work in Practice? Tonight in Dialogue: Christian Felber & Luigi Zingales

Our guests in today’s online dialogue of the Future Markets Consultation are Christian Felber and Luigi Zingales.

Zingales co-developed the Financial Trust Index, designed to monitor the level of trust that Americans have toward their financial system and is critical of monopolies dominating today’s economy. Topic of discussion – you are cordially invited to join at 18.30 CET – is whether a different market economy can work in practice.

It’s Time to End Slash-and-Burn Capitalism

“We don’t need to reinvent capitalism. We just need to practice it. That means that corporations that embrace market mechanisms and decry government intervention in the good times should not change the rules when times turn tough. Privatizing profits while socializing risks isn’t capitalism: It’s rigged roulette. Equally important, practicing capitalism does not mean insisting on special treatment from government that benefits shareholders at the expense of other stakeholders. And it means treating government as the vital partner to business, one that supports the physical and social infrastructure, and the political stability, that make business possible.”
