Our world is overdue for a moment of economic reimagination. We’re living in an era of extreme wealth inequality – one in which racial disparities and inequalities between nations continue to widen. At the same time, new ambitious economic ideas and policies are emerging. The debate about what should follow a half-century of neoliberalism has begun.
In partnership with The Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy at The New School, Oxfam is hosting an interactive panel discussion with pioneering leaders at the fore of politics, advocacy and scholarship. A drinks reception will follow the live event in Washington.
Following a welcome from Abby Maxman, President and CEO of Oxfam America, The Washington Post's Ishaan Tharoor will moderate a discussion between Winnie Byanyima and Darrick Hamilton.
