This week we focus on the practical side of a new, different capitalism, and discuss the viability of new market practices. Many ideas regarding starting a new market economy have already been developed. How can these practices - both in businesses and the financial sector - be embedded in current-day market systems? What are obstacles that hinder the process towards a just transition? And what role can the EU play in this regard? These questions - and more - will be discussed with economists Luigi Zingales and Christian Felber.
