The American Dream is in trouble, but there are ways to fix it! Join us for this webcast as our guest co-author helps us examine what is wrong with market economies not only in the United States but elsewhere as well, and how capitalism can be fixed to better serve society.

In their new book Sustaining Capitalism, authors Steve Odland and Joseph Minarik at the Committee for Economic Development (CED) of The Conference Board, detail solutions for restoring trust in the American system. The European dream is not performing much better, as proved by Brexit, rampant Euroscepticism, and the success of extreme right populist movements in countries that face elections this year. What lessons can Europe learn from the proposed solutions in the US? 

Key takeaways:

  • Shifting the business perspective from the short to the long term 
  • Rebuilding trust
