RajanRaghuram Rajan, distinguished University of Chicago professor, former IMF chief economist, head of India’s central bank, and author of the 2010 FT-Goldman-Sachs Book of the Year Fault Lines, has a unique vantage point onto the social and economic consequences of globalization and their ultimate effect on our politics.
