In this post-covid world it is crucial now more than ever, that we have informed debate on important public policy and economic issues. In response to this new landscape, we have initiated a virtual Motu Research Round Table webinar series. This video conference format means we can reach out to some incredible thought leaders from around the globe.

Rebecca Henderson gave a short presentation on her recent book: Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire. Her book not only outlines how capitalism needs to change if we are to build a just and sustainable world, but also draws on twenty years of research in organizational change, innovation and disruption, and political theory in combination with a series of in-depth case studies to outline a practical roadmap for how we can get there from here. Business can change the world.
