May 2020, Book Chapter, "We live in an age of astonishing inequality, together with volatile and oligarchic politics. We also confront seemingly intractable inefficiencies in key sectors like education, finance, health, and media, and a spectacular ongoing climate crisis. We believe that these are all solvable problems—or at least that we can make serious headway on them. Economists have an indispensable role to play. Indeed they have already started to play it."
