Economist Dambisa Moyo: The Edge of Chaos

The widening gap between the rich and the poor is one of the most important issues facing societies worldwide. Income inequality has increased drastically over the past four decades, and the debate on how to address this problem has never been more important. Dambisa Moyo, global economist and author of the new book, Edge of Chaos, analyzes how liberal democracies are failing their own citizens. She emphasizes the importance of economic growth in creating global stability, and presents us with a radical roadmap to reform our democracies to meet the needs of the people.

Moyo presents the economic struggles that are weakening our democracies and how we can overcome them without abandoning democracy itself.
