A World to Win: Asset Manager Capitalism w/ Adrienne Buller and Ben Braun
This week, Grace speaks to Adrienne Buller and Ben Braun. Adrienne is a senior research fellow at the think tank Common Wealth, and Ben is a political scientist at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies. They recently co-authored a paper entitled ‘Under new management: Share ownership and the rise of UK asset manager capitalism (https://www.common-wealth.co.uk/reports/under-new-management-share-ownership-and-the-growth-of-uk-asset-manager-capitalism)‘.
With Grace, Adrienne and Ben discuss the rise of the big three asset managers, who really makes the big decisions in today’s corporations, and whether workers can ever hope to use their power as shareholders to change capitalism.
