As the growing financial sector approaches 50% of our economy, many business leaders and economists worry that instead of creating wealth through products and jobs, we are extracting wealth and concentrating it at the top.
William Lazonick, the director of the Center for Industrial Competitiveness and president of the Academic-Industry Research Network joins us along with the Silicon Valley philanthropist and venture capitalist Andy Rappaport to discuss ways to revitalize our economy and create jobs that sustain and broaden our prosperity.
