Orthodox is obsolete; conventional is kaput. We thought we knew how we make economics, politics and technology work for us. But increasingly, they are failing to run by the rules and systems we’ve honed over recent decades. Boom–bust economies, fractured and destructive politics, and a deeply degraded ecosystem are just some of the symptoms.

In this talk acclaimed business journalist Rod Oram tells us about his travels to Beijing, London and Chicago to explore these symptoms and to seek answers – and hope. Because if ten billion people are going to live well on this planet in 2050, we have to fundamentally change the way we do things.

Rod Oram is a New Zealand journalist writing on corporate, economic and political issues. He is a columnist for The Sunday Star-Times, a regular broadcaster on radio and television and a frequent public speaker. He is an adjunct professor in the business school at Unitec in Auckland and he has contributed to several regional economic development projects.
