The Hitchhiker’s Guide To Our Crises
‘Hope is not a solution. Never confuse faith with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts. Failure isn’t fatal, failing to change is.’
Satyajit Das is a globally respected former banker and consultant with over forty years’ experience in financial markets and the international bestselling author of Traders, Guns & Money: Knowns and Unknowns in the Dazzling World of Derivatives, Extreme Money: The Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk, and A Banquet of Consequences.
Join Das as he delivers the inaugural E. W. Cole Lecture at the Wheeler Centre, offering a memorable and surprisingly playful examination of the greatest crises facing our world today, as well as unconventional ideas for how we might go about solving them.
Following his 40-minute lecture, Das is joined by Sally Warhaft to further analyse and interrogate his ideas.
This podcast was recorded on Thursday, 31 March 2022 and presented in partnership with the E.W. Cole Foundation as part of the E.W. Cole Lecture Series.
The bookseller for this event was Mary Martin Bookshop.
