Amid a return to growth many years after the 2008 financial crisis, the IMF and other institutions are now raising the alarm that reforms deployed in the crisis aftermath won’t be adequate to address another cycle of crash and burn. In this informative interview with the World Economic Forum’s Ross Chainey, noted economist Kenneth Rogoff expresses concern that nations lack the tools to confront a new crisis, and that inequality, technology and climate change will make enormous impacts on future generations. This sobering but ultimately hopeful article will engage executives, economists and policy analysts.
