Join the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Athens Democracy Forum (in association with The New York Times) for a Pocket Dilemmas podcast special on capitalism in the post-Covid-19 era. How will the pandemic change our economies and politics?

We will be livestreaming the discussion on Facebook on June 5 at 14:30 BST (GMT+1/9:30 EDT (GMT – 4).

In only a few months, the coronavirus pandemic has seriously shifted the balance of power between the state and the private sector. How is this impacting our politics and economies? 

Our virtual discussion will explore whether capitalism can adapt to and embrace these changes, or whether Covid-19 will transform capitalism forever.

  • Joseph Stiglitz, Economist and Professor, Columbia University

There will be Q&A session with the audience after that. If you have any queries or would like to submit questions in advance, please contact melohinv@ebrd.com
