- Eye Opening
Economist Mariana Mazzucato shines a light on an economic topic with important social and philosophical implications: the concept of value, and what creates it or diminishes it. Her engaging talk draws a historical timeline that explores how society’s changing definitions of value influence productivity and prosperity, and she posits how modern-day problems like climate change might find a solution through the collective reassessment of a vital economic idea. Mazzucato’s deft handling of a weighty subject, along with some useful graphics, make this video required viewing.
