Join professor Luigi Zingales as he talks about his new book, A Capitalism for the People: Recapturing the Lost Genius of American Prosperity. The book and discussion will cover how in 1997, the US government lectured the East Asian governments about the dangers of crony capitalism. Fifteen years later the disease has now infected the United States. Far from being the open society it once was, where the American Dream was within everyone's reach, America is degenerating into a corrupt form of capitalism. A Capitalism for the People is a sharp expose of what is wrong with America today and a passionate call for change.
