The success of many developed economies has depended on strong and reliable rule of law - and on the reliability of democracy itself - as both provide critical reassurance to investors. And yet, around the world, democracy is in decline, threatened both by the rejection of science, logic and reason as well as by political activists seeking to replace long-trusted power structures with new regimes.
In this special episode, we'll explore the threats to democracy globally and how we can act to combat them. We will discuss the following questions:
* Which countries provide the most free and fair labor markets?
* Are companies domiciled in more democratic countries at an advantage and more investible?
* What are the links between culture, values and democracy?
* What positive role can individuals, companies, investors and governments play?
We'll be joined by moderator Julie Cane, CEO of Democracy Investments, in conversation with:
* Lisa Witter, CEO, Apolitical Foundation
* Rick Rikoski, Chief Economist, Democracy Investments
* Stephen Young, The Caux Round Table for Moral Capitalism
This episode will also include our monthly Green Jobs Report, where we explore how the ongoing health and economic environment is impacting the workplace and the role that green jobs and a green new deal can play in helping to rebuild stronger, more resilient, more inclusive economies. Our regular guests include Dr. Fadhel Kaboub, Associate Professor of Economics at Denison University, and President of the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity and Amir Khaleghi, PhD candidate in Economics, University of Missouri at Kansas City.
