Is Capitalism Working? A Conversation with Oren Cass
As part of the Future of Capitalism series in the Business and Society Hub, CBS is hosting conversations on overarching political economy questions affecting business and the broader society. Many of today’s debates in public policy toward business reflect debates among economists, public intellectuals, and policymakers over the continued relevance of classical liberal (think Adam Smith or David Ricardo) or neoliberal (think Friedrich Hayek or Milton Friedman) world views. Our guest, Oren Cass, founder and executive director of American Compass, is an important contributor to this debate, Formerly a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, he is the author of the The Once and Future Worker: A Vision for the Renewal of Work in America. In his leadership of American Compass, he focuses on “What the post-Trump right-of-center is going to be” in shaping the fortunes of business and workers.
