ASSET MANAGER CAPITALISM: An interview with Adrienne Buller and Ben Braun

July 28, 2021

This week, Grace speaks to Adrienne Buller and Ben Braun. Adrienne is a senior research fellow at Common Wealth and Ben is a political scientist at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies. Together, they recently wrote a paper for the think tank Common Wealth entitled 'Under new management: Share ownership and the rise of UK asset manager capitalism'. They discuss the rise of the big three asset managers, who really makes the big decisions in today’s corporations, and whether workers can ever hope to use their power as shareholders to change capitalism.
