Description

Even though his book: Winners Take All, The Elite Charade of Changing the World, was published back in 2018 Anand Giridharadas is still in demand as speaker and writer on that topic. The inequality of wealth and power has grown and Giridharadas’ reach now is international.

This is the conclusion of a one hour conversation. Towards the end of Part ONE John Dankosky and Anand Giridharadas had gotten into a heated argument over the efficiency of government with Dankosky making the case for those who claim that many government functions should be transferred to private companies.

Giridharadas made the counter-argument for the efficiency of the federal court system and restated his support for social security and universal healthcare. He also answered the question: Is there an ethical ways of being a billionaire; and lays out how the corona virus could lead to an age of imagination and reform - or move even more power into the hands of corporations. The talk ends with a very inspiring reading list and a poem he wrote with his 5-year old son.
Giridharadas is an editor-at-large for Time; an on-air political analyst for MSNBC, and a visiting scholar at the Journalism Institute at New York University.

On May 19, 2020, Anand Giridharadas was interviewed, from his home, for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven, Connecticut. His interviewer was John Dankosky, a 25-year veteran of public radio.
