Annual Grigor McClelland lecture: Is business to blame for capitalism?

Is capitalism in crisis? Diane Coyle, Bennett Professor of Public Policy, and theme lead for knowledge capital at The Productivity Institute, shared her views at the Alliance Manchester Business School's Grigor McClelland Lecture 2021.

There is a lot of talk right now about a crisis of capitalism. But what makes things different in 2021, says Professor Coyle, is that this is not a purely anti-establishment phenomenon. “What we are experiencing now is a continuation of a sense of malaise in our market economies that has continued ever since the financial crisis of 2008 and post-crisis recession.”

Lecture starts: 8:23
