The New York Times foreign affairs columnist, three-time Pulitzer winner, and author of Thank You for Being Late, Thomas L. Friedman and McKinsey Global Institute chairman James Manyika build on their multiyear dialogue by engaging on the impact of connectivity, globalization, digitization, and artificial intelligence on work, skills, incomes, and prosperity. They discuss the opportunities and challenges that these technologies and profound “climate changes” (as Tom calls them) pose for society as well as the implications for individuals, businesses, and governments. The discussion also explores solutions, including building resilience and the role of complex adaptive coalitions in solving local, national, and global challenges.
