Join the National Academy of Social Insurance and the Bipartisan Policy Center as we co-host Peter Georgescu, former CEO of Young & Rubicam, to discuss his new book, Capitalists Arise!.

This discussion forum is part of the Academy’s national event series to improve our understanding of the nation’s social insurance programs and how they are addressing – and could better address – the challenges posed by growing inequality.

Capitalists Arise! (published on May 1, 2017) is based on Mr. Georgescu’s 2015 op-ed in the New York Times about why we need to deal with income inequality. Mr. Georgescu was also the opening keynote speaker at the Academy’s 2017 conference, which centered on our Report to the New Leadership and the American People on Social Insurance and Inequality.

  • Speaker: Peter Georgescu, former CEO, Young & Rubicam
