This is a teaser-video for brand-new 2021 keynote topic: SUSTAINABLE IS THE NEW PROFITABLE. GREEN IS THE NEW DIGITAL.
IMHO, the decarbonisation of our economy is the biggest challenge AND the biggest opportunity in this coming decade. This topic has been on the agenda for decades but had to first be kick-started by the Corona crisis: The radical decarbonisation of our economies and the ‘gradually, then suddenly‘ departure from the fossil-fuel era.
Wide-ranging new carbon taxes are inevitable, and so is the sudden end of the $3.5 Trillion global fossil fuel subsidy madness. During the Covid-19 crisis we have learned that being prepared for emergencies is utterly essential – and that we can compromise and collaborate if we have to. Covid-19 is a test-run for climate change.
The circular economy is the only economy we’ll have in 2030, and ‘sustainable’ is becoming the new ‘profitable’ within the next 5 years. Any company that does not understand how the global move towards decarbonisation will impact every segment of their business – from R&D to supply-chain to production to distribution to marketing to branding – will wither and shrink or fade away completely. Any individual that does not understand what this shift means as far as knowledge, skills and mindset is concerned, will quickly become dispensable.
In this talk, I explain why this tectonic shift is happening now, what it really means, and how to get behind it and prosper in this fork-in-the-road decade that’s coming up.

From the The Metropolitan Revolution: How Cities and Metros Are Fixing Our Broken Politics and Fragile Economy, By Brookings Institution
Robert Reich and Mark Zandi debate Glenn Hubbard and Arthur Laffer on the topic: The Rich Are Taxed Enough. Moderated by John Donvan.
How do we fix the economy? The U.S. government's budget deficit is nearing a trillion dollars for the fourth straight year and unemployment remains high. With the Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of 2012, what is the best move for continued economic recovery? President Obama says we should raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 to reduce the deficit. Others say that the richest 1% already pay more than a quarter of all federal taxes and higher taxes for job creators would slow economic growth. Are the nation's wealthiest not paying their "fair share," or should tax breaks be extended for everyone in the name of job creation?
