The Controversial Tax Policies Of Emmanuel Saez – A New Capitalisn’t Episode

“UC Berkeley professor Emmanuel Saez is one of the most accomplished—and, thanks to his work on taxation with Gabriel Zucman which inspired both Elizabeth Warren’s and Bernie Sanders’s plans for a wealth tax—controversial economists around these days. In this episode of their podcast Capitalisn’t, Luigi Zingales and Kate Waldock dig into tax policy, the wealth tax and why Saez’s work is so controversial.”

Why Business Leaders Should Solve Problems Beyond Their Companies

“Rosabeth Moss Kanter, professor at Harvard Business School, believes the world demands a new kind of business leader. She says so-called “advanced leaders” work inside and outside their companies to tackle big issues such as climate change, public health, and social inequality. She gives real-life examples and explains how business leaders can harness their experience, networks, innovative approaches, and the power of their organizations to solve challenging problems. Kanter is the author of the book .”

Do Traditional Compliance Efforts Weaken Workers’ Moral Motivation?

“How can organizations actualize their employees’ ethical potential? It’s a question Carsten Tams has been tossing around recently. In his time helping companies with organizational design and cultural change, among other things, he’s come to believe that, in the right environment, people are quite capable, even eager, to conform with and uphold ethical norms. Behavioral science, specifically motivational science, offers valuable insights for how to harness employees’ best intentions.”

How Free-Market Economists Got It Wrong

“Azeem Azhar and Binyamin Appelbaum discuss how a group of free-market economists managed to reshape our modern world. They promised growth and broad prosperity, but instead left us with fractured societies and weakened democracies. Appelbaum is the author of the new book, The Economists’ Hour, a deep dive into the history of ideas that formed capitalism, as we know it.”

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.”
