Gillian Tett (U.S editor-at-large at the Financial Times) and Yanis Varoufakis (Former finance minister of Greece) debate their visions for a post-COVID economy.

19:00 - 20:30

Gillian Tett is the pioneering columnist who has spent the last decade documenting the rise of ‘conscious capitalism’, a movement led by businesses that have concluded they can no longer afford to ignore issues like climate change, income inequality and social justice. Yanis Varoufakis is the former Greek finance minister who oversaw the bailout crisis in 2015 and has spent the last decade calling for a kinder vision for the global economy.

On October 4 they come to Intelligence Squared to discuss and debate their visions for a post-COVID economy. While both agree that capitalism needs reform they differ in the solutions they proffer. Tett believes business can play a greater leadership role in confronting existential issues like climate change. Varoufakis will draw from his new book Another Now and present a plan for a post-capitalist future.
