If you know interesting professionals who will enjoy being part of a kind, ambitious community, send them our way.
New Cohort Based Course: Practical World History
I met Saurav Jha 4 years back and introduced him to Network Capital. Since then, I have followed his writing and am glad to be hosting him to reflect on his latest book “Negotiating the New Normal” as part of our new course on practical world history. He raises important questions and nudges us to explore India’s role in shaping a new global order in the post-pandemic world.
Over 25 years ago, Francis Fukuyama proclaimed ‘end of history’, a particular political, economic, or social system led by the West which would constitute the end-point of humanity's sociocultural evolution and the final form of human government. In the past, many thinkers have argued that a particular system is the "end of history" including Thomas More in Utopia, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Karl Marx, among others. It turns out that history is a lot more defiant than we think. Fukuyama is out with his new book which makes a case for greater government and is a lot more sympathetic to socialism.
