The Corporations and Society Program hosts the nation’s leading academics and practitioners to discuss the complex and interacting forces that impact corporations and society. This speaker series is intended to help the Stanford University community develop and explore connections between finance, business, law, and policy. Each of the speakers participates in a variety of events around campus, including lectures, small group discussions, class visits, and individual meetings.
Lindsey and Teles will be on campus to discuss their book, The Captured Economy. Lindsey and Teles argue that inequality has been worsened by special interests who steer policy to benefit themselves. They also argue that the influence of the politically powerful has lowered the overall growth of the American economy.
