September 01, 2011

On September 1, the blog Thought Economics published an interview with Center Director Edmund Phelps titled 'Capitalism - what comes next?' The piece discusses the story of modern capitalism, the benefits it has brought, and the challenges it has created. It also explores the 'post crisis' economy, the role of government in society, the relationship between capitalism and conflict, the role of oil in our society and looks at what needs to be done to 'fix' our global economy, and the science of economics itself.
