What is the future of capitalism: a democratic American-style model or something closer Chinese state capitalism? This week,
Branko Milanovic and I explore that question at length. In the process, we also talked about the political significance of inequality and the compatibility of capitalism and democracy.
Branko is a visiting professor at the City University in New York’s graduate center, and he’s a senior scholar at the Stone Center on Socio-economic Inequality. He’s also the author of several books, including Worlds Apart, Global Inequality, and, most recently, last year’s Capitalism, Alone.
