Episode Summary

Is this the end of globalisation? Matthew consults the Cambridge University economist, Ha-Joon Chang.

Episode Notes

 

Global crises cause big changes and reveal deep structural weaknesses. As drastic measures are taken across the world to stop the spread of COVID-19,  what are the short, medium and long term implications for our society, our economy, geopolitics - and us as individuals?

In this special interview series from the RSA, its chief executive, Matthew Taylor, talks to a range of practitioners - from scholars to business leaders, politicians to journalists - to assess the scale of the response and consider how we build effective bridges to our new future. 

Ha-Joon Chang teaches economics at Cambridge University. He is the author of 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism, and Economics: the User's Guide
