- December 02, 2021
- CBR - Capitalisnt
In his book, Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam, Vivek Ramaswamy, a scientist, lawyer, and former venture capitalist and entrepreneur, argues that “wokeism” has become a way for corporations to wrap themselves in a mantle, which then furthers the idea of crony capitalism and extends their power into spaces they were never meant to occupy. On this episode of the Capitalisn’t podcast, hosts Luigi Zingales and Bethany McLean sit down with Ramaswamy to discuss his perspectives on the roles of virtue, ethics, and politics in business and society.
