Phil's Book Club

From the journey of senior executives to issues of gender and data bias, each month, we’ll discuss one recently released book, and add a new one to the list, so you'll be able to plan ahead.

Our first four books are recent releases that have been very well received. Together they give a sense of the books we’ll read: the first follows the journey of a senior executive in a given company and industry; the second book looks at issues of gender and data bias; and the third and fourth address important geopolitical and economic trends.

August: Phil's book of the month

Live Discussion with Phil 25 August

Wednesday, 25 June at 11:00 CEST

Creating value in a competitive economy

For the fourth meeting of Phil’s Book Club, Phil Rosenzweig will be joined by Arturo Bris,  Director of the IMD World Competitiveness Center, for a discussion of The Value of Everything: Making and Taking in the Global Economy, by Mariana Mazzucato.

Mariana Mazzucato is Professor of Economics at University College, London. Her book, described as “passionate, infectious, timely”, won the 2018 Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought. It was described by Martin Wolf of the Financial Times as making readers “confront long-held beliefs about how economies work and who benefits”.

We invite you to take part in this conversation, which will address current policy debates about wealth and taxes, inequality, public expenditures, and re-inventing capitalism.
