Show Notes
A key forum from none other than the World Economic Forum, Davos asks ‘How is Rentier Capitalism Aggravating Inequality?’ Renegade economists’ ears will prick up at such a title, where a sophisticated discussion of monopoly rents, patents, globalisation, populism and land rents ensue. Panelists Ricardo Haussmann and Guy Standing dig in deep.
