In his 2019 book Winners Take AllAnand Giridharadas launched a searing attack on the global elites. Now he turns his thoughts to the post-pandemic world. Is the crisis an opportunity to create a more egalitarian society? How can the powerful be prevented from exploiting the situation to further entrench their advantages? And could this moment be an opportunity to reinvent the relationship between the citizen, the market and the state?

"WHAT DO WE DO WITH BILLIONAIRES?" - Meet Anand Giridharadas

Play
Read more

A gripping conversation for our Season 2 opener with Anand Giridharadas, who says ‘I think the best thing to do with billionaires would be to not have them anymore’.

Anand, with his many interviews and his brilliant best-selling book, ‘Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World’, has been described as ‘the scourge of plutocrats everywhere’.

In this fascinating conversation on the eve of the Davos World Economic Forum, Anand asks why we would ever think that the people responsible for today’s extreme inequality are capable of solving it. Why do we think it is possible to magically benefit those at the bottom whilst continuing to benefit those at the top? He shows how so many billionaires have captured the whole idea of change and revolution, using it instead to defend the status quo. 

Anand looks at the power of language, and how the left has failed to mount a defense against this onslaught from elites pretending to ‘change the world’. He believes that people are beginning to see through the elite charade – and finds hope in this. 

Presented by Nadia Daar and Nabil Ahmed.
