Friday Fireside Chat - Rita McGrath & Peter Georgescu
In his book "Capitalists, Arise! End Economic Inequality, Grow the Middle Class, Heal the Nation" Peter Georgescu begs for capitalists to change a system he maintains is committing "slow suicide." Georgescu arrived in the United States a penniless refugee from Romania and rose to become the CEO of legendary advertising company Young & Rubicam. But today, he argues, stories like his would be well-nigh impossible. Georgescu's remedies for fixing capitalism are not only practical, but make the point that capitalists can only do well in a society that is likewise strong and healthy. As the crisis we face now is leading to questions about every aspect of our economy and democracy, this is an essential conversation.
