“Changing The World”: An Elite Charade?

By The Philadelphia Citizen (other events)

Thursday, September 6 2018 6:00 PM 8:00 PM EDT

Online ticketing is closed but tickets may be purchased onsite at the event!

Please join The Citizen, along with ImpactPHL, Economy League of Greater Philadelphia and B Lab, for an evening with Anand Giridharadas, author of the provocative new book, Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World, and Jay Coen Gilbert, co-founder of B Lab, the nonprofit behind the international B Corp movement of using business as a force for good.

Giridharadas is an on-air political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, and a visiting scholar at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University. He is a former columnist for The New York Times. Winners Take All, praised by Bryan Stevenson and Bill Gates, is a deeply-reported critique of "an ascendant power elite" that seeks to use the power of capitalism to address social ills—"to change the world while also profiting from the status quo."

It promises to be a compelling, even controversial, discussion. Signed copies of books will be available for sale.
