How responsible businesses need to grow the pie

The Radical Old Idea series draws inspiration from the Scottish Englightenment, providing a platform for “old” ideas such as responsible business which have the potential to radically transform our financial and economic systems. This session, entitled ‘Responsible Business in a Time of Crisis’ saw Professor Alex Edmans of London Business School discuss his highly-rated new book, Grow the Pie, and the relevance it has in these uncertain times.
