Neoliberalism + Meaningful Capitalism An inspired and inspiring episode about capitalism, commerce, and the need for compassion. Frank and Joel have a deep knowledge of capitalism from a historical perspective as well as social-psychological context. We discuss the meaning and implications of neoliberalism. Both experts share their hopes and perspectives for us now to challenge ‘the norm’ and encourage us to think beyond conventional and accepted beliefs. Thank you again, Frank and Joel!
