Dambisa Moyo: Economic growth has stalled. Let’s fix it (Video)

Dambisa Moyo is a Zambian-born international economist and author who analyzes the macroeconomy and global affairs.
Moyo currently serves on the boards of Barclays Bank, the financial services group, SABMiller, the global brewer, and Barrick Gold, the global miner. She worked for two years at the World Bank and eight years at Goldman Sachs before becoming an author and international public speaker.

Economic growth is the defining challenge of our time; without it, political and social instability rises, human progress stagnates and societies grow dimmer. In this video, Dambisa Moyo says, dogmatic capitalism isn’t creating the growth we need. As she shows, in both state-sponsored and market-driven models, capitalism is failing to solve social ills, fostering corruption and creating income inequality. Moyo surveys the current economic landscape and suggests that we have to start thinking about capitalism as a spectrum so we can blend the best of different models together to foster growth. Enjoy the video.

You can get her latest book, Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What It Means for the World which looks at how commodities markets influence much more than the global economy.
