The Reimagining the Economy Project invites you to a conversation with economist Raj Chetty and political philosopher Michael Sandel, moderated by Professor Dani Rodrik, Faculty Co-Director of the Reimagining the Economy Project.

A critical objective of our project is to use a multidisciplinary approach to understand and interpret the range of economic crises we face today, as well as the experiments underway to help address these.  This requires us to go beyond the conventional wisdom of the economics discipline. Our Economics and Beyond series is an effort in this direction. Through these conversations we hope to understand our economy through a much broader lens, to identify the inequality-perpetuating features of existing institutions, interpret successful institutional arrangements, and develop alternative institutional trajectories for the future. This conversation will focus on Chetty and Sandel's research on higher education, economic inequalities, and meritocracy.
