GES 2015 Short Video Interviews


 

Interview with Jeffrey Immelt

Jeffrey Immelt, Chairman & CEO of GE, on the 2015 GES motto: Values to Guide Economies. “So far it has been about the consumer internet, like social media. But the next 10 or 15 years will be about the Industrial Internet. I think it is going to transform the way people work, the way airlines fly planes or railroads run locomotives. And we are just in the beginning days of that.”

The interview was held on the occasion of his presentation with the 2015 Global Economy Prize.



Interview with Sir Christopher Pissarides

Sir Christopher Pissarides, Professor of Economics and Nobel Laureate on the 2015 GES motto: Values to Guide Economies. “Greece has to deal with a eurozone that has completely different values on some key issues, like the role of policy. There is a kind of conflict that cannot be resolved by just saying: you have to do it, because that’s what everyone has to do.”



“It´s an economic disaster”

Interview with Kristine and Douglas Tompkins, founders of Esprit and The North Face, now creators of national parks in South America, on the 2015 GES motto: Values to Guide Economies.

Saving nature or doing business – that’s a common conflict of values the world over. “People talk about the great goodness of economic development over time, but in fact it’s an economic disaster”, they say.
