Fixing the Broken Side of Capitalism

  1. Luigi Zingales

Professor Luigi Zingales discusses Capitalism and the economic system—what works, what doesn’t work, and what can be done to fix the parts that are broken. Zingales focuses on the problems with capitalism, such as the concentration of market power and where distortions occur that benefit the few—not the many. In addition, Zingales proposes a unique alternative to the public company model of maximizing shareholder wealth and recommends companies instead  "maximize shareholder welfare” to focus on what investors care about—not just profits and market value—but also the environment, governance, and society. 

The Take 15 Series is a series of short interviews with leading practitioners on timely topics focused on the investment profession.
