This book talk is part of the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival 2019, the Oxford Martin School is the Festival Ideas Partner

Former vice-president of the World Bank Professor Ian Goldin draws on his recent books Age of Discovery: Navigating the Storms of Our Second Renaissance and Development: A Very Short Introduction and on his two BBC series After the Crash and Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Jobs to provide perspectives on what for many is a perplexing time.

Goldin shows why Brexit, Trump and rising nationalism are a response to globalisation and accelerating technological and social change and discusses what can be done and what is next.

Goldin is a senior fellow of the Oxford Martin School and professor of globalisation and development at the University of Oxford. He is a former vice-president of the World Bank and former chief executive of the Development Bank of South Africa and advisor to Nelson Mandela. His books also include The Pursuit of Development, The Butterfly Defect, and Is the Planet Full?.
