Fireside Chat with Anand Giridharadas interviewed by Wilma Liebman (Followed by Q&A)

Tishman Auditorium - Room U100, Ground Floor
The University Center
63 Fifth Avenue, NYC

This highlight event of Day 2, will feature award-winning author Anand Giridharadas in conversation with Wilma Liebman, former chair of the National Labor Relations Board under the Obama Administration and current co-chair of the Institute for the Cooperative Digital Economy. 

Anand Giridharadas’ Winners Take All shines a spotlight on the moral contradictions that capitalism’s wealthy philanthropists present —  between their stated aims to do good and the realities of the social and economic harms that their wealth accumulation may create or worsen.  Nonetheless, he seems optimistic that there are solutions to our social ills, possibilities for positive cultural change. Creating a cooperative digital economy is one hopeful response to the problems he describes, as we will explore with him.
