In Davos Man, an excellent new book by New York Times’ Global Economics Correspondent Peter S. Goodman, the case is clear: billionaires are making massive profits off extracting resources from the planet while social services are being gutted. From climate change to COVID-19, Goodman shows how decades of slashing taxes on the richest people and cutting social spending has accelerated the 21st century's greatest crises and threatened liberal democracy around the globe. How is this happening? Why is this happening? What can we do about it? In this in-depth, fascinating conversation, Goodman explains the path we took to get here and the direction we need to take now to better govern our societies and protect the future.
