Event description
Hillary Clinton interviews author Alec Ross about the way to restore the balance of power between government, citizens, and businesses.

About this event

For 150 years, there has been a contract: Companies hold the power to shape our daily lives; the state holds the power to make them fall in line; and the people hold the power to choose their leaders. But now, this balance has shaken loose.

As the market consolidates, the lines between Walmart and the Halls of Congress have become razor-thin. Private companies have begun to behave like nations, and with the government bogged down in bureaucratic negotiations and partisan wars, people look to nimble, powerful firms to solve societal problems—and to be our moral standard-bearers. As Walter Isaacson said about Ross’s first book, “The future is already hitting us, and Ross shows how it can be exciting rather than frightening.”

Through interviews with the world’s most influential thinkers and stories of corporate activism and malfeasance, government failure and renewal, and innovative economic and political models, The Raging 2020s proposes a new social contract—one that resets the equilibrium between corporations, the governing, and the governed.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is the first woman in US history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party. She served as the 67th Secretary of State after nearly four decades in public service advocating on behalf of children and families as an attorney, First Lady, and US Senator. She is the author of seven previous books, all published by Simon & Schuster.
