Wants, Greed, and Capitalism

A special TV program on capitalism (link) will be broadcasted tomorrow by NHK from 11pm (50 minutes) in Japan. The Japanese title of the program is "欲望と資本主義", which roughly corresponds to the title of this blog post. The program aims to (re)consider essential aspects of our economic society and the future of capitalism (as well as its origin), focusing especially on people's wants and greed. I contribute to the program as a navigator, interviewing major players from academia, financial sector and IT industry. The persons whom I made interviews are listed below (alphabetical order):

- Alvin E. Roth, Professor at Stanford University (Nobel laureate)
- Tomas Sedlacek, Chief Macroeconomic Strategist at CSOB
- Scott Stanford, Co-Founder & Managing Partner at Sherpa Capital
- Joseph E. Stiglitz, Professor at Columbia University (Nobel laureate)
- William Tanuwijaya, founder & CEO at Tokopedia

I would be grateful for everyone involved in this wonderful program. Really look forward to watching it :)
