Halla Tómasdóttir: Can Capitalism Save the Planet?


Capitalism has arguably accelerated many of the world’s problems, from climate change to economic exclusion. What role can—and should—it play in accelerating solutions? Halla Tómasdóttir of The B Team offers up a new spin on capitalism: one driven not only by short-term profit, but also by the wellbeing of people and the planet. She’s working within the profit-driven system, from the top down, on what she calls “radical collaboration” between the private sector, civil society, and governments.Halla helped to found a university, launched her own investment firm, ran for president of her home country of Iceland, and is no stranger to the silo effect between sectors. Now, as CEO of the B Team, which she describes as “a group of courageous business and civil society leaders working together to transform business for a better world,” she’s rallying companies across disciplines to collaborate on solutions to the globe’s most pressing problems. She speaks with Nguhi—a self-described skeptic of capitalism—about the potential for change in a system largely responsible for the things that need changing.For show notes and transcripts go to https://skoll.org/2021/06/23/solvers-episode-10-halla-tomasdottir-can-capitalism-save-the-planet/On social media: @skollfoundation #solverspod  Send us an email: solvers@skoll.org

Could you explain what you mean by this?What can we learn from our response to the 2008 financial crisis, and what is different about this moment?Is there a "future of capitalism" – or do we need a more radical rethink of our socioeconomic systems and the way that we distribute wealth and power? What is the role of social investors and philanthropists in your vision for a better, kinder world?Some of Halla's recent work has included reflections on the current moment, The B Team strategy, A call for compassionate leadership, and a recently published article We Need a Reset, Not a Restart of business as usual.
