We will never have income equality. That's not the point. The point is to have equality of opportunity.
Peter Georgescu arrived in this country as a penniless Romanian refugee and rose to prominence as the CEO of Young & Rubicam. It’s an American Dream success story that could not play out in today’s economic environment — one that is plagued with disappearing jobs, flat wages, and a shrinking middle class. In his new book, Capitalists, Arise!, Georgescu argues that the stark reality of our current economic malaise and social breakdown can be attributed, in large part, to the short-term thinking spawned by shareholder primacy. With deeply sobering statistics and new research, Georgescu points the way toward a future that will only be possible with enlightened capitalism. Stick around after the event for a book signing with Peter Georgescu.
