Venue: Your computer, mobile phone or tablet

Branko Milanović joins the GLOBE EU Webinar Series to discuss his new book "Capitalism, Alone: The Future of the System That Rules the World" (2019, Belknap Press). After the presentation of the book, Pablo Astorga, senior research fellow at Institut Barcelona D'Estudis Internacionals, will offer some reflections on the book to start off the discussion, with attention to the implications for the EU. A Q&A with webinar participants will follow.

About the book: For the first time in human history, the globe is dominated by one economic system. In Capitalism, Alone, Branko Milanović explains the reasons for this decisive historical shift since the days of feudalism and, later, communism. Surveying the varieties of capitalism, he asks: What are the prospects for a fairer world now that capitalism is the only game in town? His conclusions are sobering, but not fatalistic. Capitalism gets much wrong, but also much right—and it is not going anywhere. Our task is to improve it.

About the author: Branko Milanović is Visiting Presidential Professor and Core Faculty at the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. He was formerly Lead Economist in the World Bank’s research department. His books include Global Inequality and The Haves and the Have-Nots: A Brief and Idiosyncratic History of Global Inequality.

Discussant: Pablo Astorga (Institut Barcelona D'Estudis Internacionals) 

Moderator: Kari Otteburn (Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies)
