Mark Carney – How To Build a Better World For All

In Conversation with Matthew d’Ancona

The former Bank of England governor has created a ‘handbook for 21st century leaders, policymakers and everyone who wants to build a fair and sustainable world’ (Christine Lagarde). He joins us to share its insights.

We live in a world where we know the price of everything but the value of nothing. This is causing incalculable costs to our society and to our planet.

Drawing on his experience in the private sector and his 12 years as a G7 Governor, Mark Carney will explore how economic value and social values have become blurred, how we have moved from living in a market economy to a market society, and how we must rethink and rebuild before it’s too late.

Bringing a truly international perspective to the three major crises before us of credit, climate and Covid, Carney will set out a framework for the change needed for an economic and social renaissance in a post-Covid world.

Carney’s deeply researched, thoughtful and forward-looking manifesto goes to the heart of what we’ve got wrong in the past and offers achievable action plans to rebuild an inclusive social contact for individuals, businesses and governments and a more resilient and sustainable world for our children, grandchildren and generations to come.

Don’t miss this chance to hear a plan for humanity restored by one of the great economic thinkers of our time.

Praise for Mark Carney’s Value(s):

‘A roadmap to a fairer and more responsible, resilient world. Carney offers trenchant insights into our relationship with money and status, imagination, and responsibility critical to our world’s future. What do we invest in – profit or human potential? This book is irradiated with the inspiring and critical conviction that money can be transformed into a tool of collective good.’ – Antony Gormley

‘Mark Carney draws on his unique experience of running two central banks to offer original and thought-provoking solutions to the world’s biggest challenges – from Covid to climate change’ – Gordon Brown

‘A fantastic read for anyone interested in the most pressing issues facing us. The need for a world of profit with better purpose is explained in such a clear and persuasive style. I hope it gets read by many people ‘ – Jim O’Neill

‘Thought-provoking and readable… As societies struggle to rebuild solidarity in the post-Covid world, it will be an essential guide’ – Raghu Rajan
