Creating Shared Economics Views at the Rhodes Forum

Our Senior Fellow Uri Dadush will be representing the Policy Center for the New South at the Rhodes Forum taking place in Rhodes, Greece, 11-12 October 2019, under the theme « Global (Dis) Order : Towards Dialogue-Based World Views ».

Along JOMO SUNDARAM, Senior Adviser Government of Malaysia, Former United Nations Assistant Secretary General for Economic Development and JAMES GALBRAITH, Professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and at the Department of Government, University of Texas at Austin, Uri Dadush will answer the following questions :

  • Why are income inequalities at the highest levels in history?
  • What are the likely scenarios for the change in inequalities of income and wealth distribution?
  • Increase? Stabilisation? Decrease? Why?
  • What comes next after the liberal economic order – a new ‘reformed capitalism’ or a period of chaos and disarray? Or something else entirely?
  • Will the rise of nationalism lead to conflicts, if not wars, between countries, with the collapse of the international trade and capital flows, like in the 1930s?

This Forum will take place on October 11-12 at Rhodes, Greece.
