"Davos Man": How billionaires fuel global inequality while prolonging the pandemic

Davos Man 2

On this edition of Your Call, we’ll speak with New York Times global economics correspondent Peter S. Goodman about his new book, Davos Man: How the Billionaires Devoured the World.

It’s a scathing look at how our economic system has given rise to a class of billionaires who will exploit any situation - including the COVID-19 pandemic - for their own benefit, all while portraying themselves as concerned global citizens.

Guest:

Peter S. Goodman, global economics correspondent for The New York Times and author of Past Due: The End of Easy Money and the Renewal of the American Economy
