Racism makes our economy worse -- and not just in ways that harm people of color, says public policy expert Heather C. McGhee. From her research and travels across the US, McGhee shares startling insights into how racism fuels bad policymaking and drains our economic potential -- and offers a crucial rethink on what we can do to create a more prosperous nation for all. "Our fates are linked," she says. "It costs us so much to remain divided."

How the last two centuries led to today’s economy
Adam Davidson, co-founder of NPR's Planet Money, can trace a line through time from homemade clothing and baked goods to today's passion economy. Davidson argues that a combination of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is how we got to where we are.
We shifted from an intimate and localized economy of goods and services to an economy of scale, and finally to what Davidson refers to as "intimacy at scale."
There are, of course, positive attributes to this hybrid economic system, but it also comes with some of the flaws of its predecessors.
ADAM DAVIDSON is the cofounder of NPR's Planet Money podcast and a staff writer at The New Yorker, where he covers economics and business. Previously he was an economics writer for The New York Times Magazine. He has won many of journalism's most prestigious awards, including a Peabody for his coverage of the financial crisis.

Dr. Avraham Arbib shares his thoughts on the global economic downturn and how it has deep roots in the overuse and misuse of natural resources. Therefore, continuous growth is unsustainable and the risk of a non-linear collapse reaction is increasing. Consumption rates in the developed world must be reduced, but this should not be seen as a disaster, because living standards are not tightly coupled to consumption rates. A redistribution of wealth, income and opportunity for growth is essential within the world economy.
There needs to be a fundamental shift in the global approach to tackling climate change and the circular economy can play an essential role. 45% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from how we make and use products like buildings, cars and clothes, and how we produce food.
