Today’s global economy is facing a range of disruptive forces, from the COVID-19 pandemic to technology, climate change, and inequality. In each episode of this live, event series, cohosts Matthew P. Goodman and Stephanie Segal, will be joined by a prominent guest who will discuss a challenge to the global economy. With new episodes every two weeks, Economy Disrupted will grapple with the big questions facing our economy, our country, and the world today.
