A Dialogue About Democracy & Capitalism with Naomi Klein and Stephen Heintz

Values-aligned investors focus on shifting capital markets, acting on the assumption that they can be used as a lever for positive change. But is a market economy really capable of building an inclusive, equitable, and sustainable world? If so, how do we move towards a better system and when do we know if it’s working? If not, what’s the alternative?

Join Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything, and Stephen Heintz, President of The Rockefeller Brothers Fund, for an engaging dialogue about the role of capital markets in a time when democracy faces serious challenges. We’ll focus on the United States, reflecting upon the recent attacks on democracy, our civil liberties, and climate solutions. We’ll also discuss strategies for building a more just system – whether through market regulations or a clearer separation between big business and the political sphere.

 

Featuring:

Stephen Heintz, President, Rockefeller Brothers Fund

Naomi Klein, Award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author
