If you're not at the table, you're on the menu: The relationship between power, policy, environment, and the inclusiveness of growth

What are the implications of challenging policy-making, the assumptions we make; the powerful actors' we disturb? Are we better to focus on writing our own policy, or on how policy is made? The social implications of markets organized in favour of those 'at the table', are exaggerated by unequal environments. Unequal environments enable inequality of access to information, to opportunity, to influence.

These are the underlying concerns of 'governance' - how governments, citizens and communities interact to design and implement policy. An increasingly interdependent global economy faces challenges from automation, artificial intelligence, sharpening public opinion and voter behaviour. And we start in an unequal position! How do these challenges impact our ability to restore an inclusive, equitable and sustainable economy? Chris Mahony responds to these questions based on his work confronting similar assumptions at the World Bank, and the United Nations Development Program.
