Post-Covid Live 1: Whatever It Takes
3 April 2020
Professor Henrietta L. Moore talks about doing whatever it takes to redesign prosperity and restructure our economies to deliver a better quality of life for people and the planet.
Post-Covid Live addresses the nature of society, the kind of government and the form of economy we will need and want after the crisis. It is no longer possible to endorse the market as the primary mechanism for creating value and solving problems. What kind of values will guarantee quality of life for all and how will they be created and defended? How will the major challenges of our times be tackled - the ones we cannot quarantine ourselves from - climate change, social inequality, food waste, mass displacement?
We need to take this chance to put society and the wellbeing of people and planet before that of an economy based on profit and growth at any cost.
Professor Henrietta L. Moore is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity
