Robert Reich and Dan Kammen – Inequality, Climate change, & the economy


CITRIS

Published on Dec 3, 2013

While increasing energy usage by the largest nations in the world drives the global economy, the resulting burden of climate change is heaviest on the poorest people in the most fragile countries. At the same time, inequality is widespread globally; even in America, 42% of children born into poverty will stay in poverty for their entire lives. How can we address global poverty and climate change while building a strong world economy?

Former Secretary of Labor and Chancellor’s Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy, Professor Robert Reich, and Daniel Kammen, Class of 1935 Distinguished Professor of Energy & Director of Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL), speak about income inequality, climate and energy policy, and the way forward.

The UN Global Compact is convening a taskforce of CFOs for a 24-month engagement to provide a platform to interact with their peers, investors, financial institutions, and the United Nations to share ideas, develop new concepts and frameworks, and provide recommendations to unlock private capital and create a market to mainstream SDG investments.

The UN SDG Media Zone convenes Government leaders, CEOs, UN heads, activists, influencers and entrepreneurs for short panel discussions on topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals. To mark its 20th anniversary, the UN Global Compact in partnership with the UN Department of Global Communications, is bringing the SDG Media Zone to Davos for the first time during the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting. Topics discussed include principled business, climate action, gender equality, sustainable finance, global health, employee purpose and many more issues directly related to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which was unanimously agreed by 193 UN member states in September 2015.

The future of capitalism has been a hot topic at the Annual Meeting this week, with a variety of opinions and positions taken by Davos participants.

It’s dead…

“Capitalism as we have known it is dead. This obsession we have with maximising profits for shareholders alone has lead to incredible inequality and a planetary emergency.”

That was Marc Benioff at the ‘Stakeholder Capitalism: What Is Required from Corporate Leadership?‘ session.
