Yahoo Finance Presents: The Milken Institute Summer Series 2020: Lessons Learned: Mitigating the Next Crisis

After heeding the lessons from 2008-2009, leaders of the financial sector were equipped to step in as needed during the current crisis. As economies continue to lift restrictions and recover from one of the steepest declines on record, it's time to analyze the lessons to be learned and identify needed change. The next crisis--be it climate change, the inequality gap, or retirement systems--is undoubtedly in the making. As we prepare to meet it, we must address crucial questions: Will we be able to transform a system that many believe does not work for them anymore and build a more equitable society? And what role do money managers have beyond their investment mandate and allocating capital to companies that have a social contribution to global challenges?
