In his most recent book, “Need, Speed, and Greed,” The Economist’s Vijay Vaitheeswaran suggests that risk-taking innovation is the only way for companies and entrepreneurs to survive in a disruptive era of globalization. And since the benefits of growth aren’t being shared equally, he thinks that rich societies must find a path to inclusive growth or else risk being left behind.

Guests:

Vijay Vaitheeswaran, China business and finance editor for The Economist and author of "Need, Speed, and Greed: How the New Rules of Innovation Can Transform Businesses, Propel Nations to Greatness, and Tame the World's Most Wicked Problems"
