At 3.30 pm today, the Chairman of Intesa Sanpaolo, Gian Maria Gros-Pietro, and the Nobel laureate in economics, Michael Spence, will meet online to discuss the need to develop a new economic model that takes into account the transformations triggered by the health emergency.

Publication date: 30 September 2020

The crisis caused by the Covid19 emergency requires careful reflection on how to relaunch the economic system. There are two main problems to deal with: growing income inequality and worsening environment issues. To address them, forces and skills need to be combined to develop a new economic model which takes into account the current situation and leads financial institutions and large companies to adopt sustainable business models, an urgent aim that is today supported even by the most strenuous advocates of the free market, such as the large US private equity funds. They too are now asking the companies they invest in to pursue social and environmental objectives.

To address such a delicate and highly important topic, Collegio Carlo Alberto has organised an  online meeting.

The event entitled “The social bank economy“, organised as part of the series of events under the “Rebuilding Italy” banner, is scheduled for 3.30 pm today. Gian Maria Gros-Pietro, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Intesa Sanpaolo, and Michael Spence, Emeritus Professor of Economics and Management and Nobel Prize for Economics 2001, will meet to discuss the role of the social bank in the post-COVID era.

The event will be introduced by the Chair of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, Francesco Profumo, and the Chair of Fondazione Collegio Carlo Aberto, Giorgio Barba Navaretti.
