Human Capital and Technology: Building the New Social Contract

Finding solutions to some of our biggest problems, especially those of health and education, with the help of innovative finance and technology was the crux of President Jim Yong Kim’s recent talk at Stanford University. His speech, delivered ahead of the World Bank-IMF Annual Meetings, was an important moment to highlight how we can help end poverty by sustainable and equitable economic growth, fostering resilience to climate change and pandemics, and above all investing in people to better prepare ourselves for an uncertain future. The speech was followed by a lively discussion moderated by Dr. Condoleezza Rice, 66th U.S. Secretary of State.
