Les Rencontres Économiques d’Aix-en-Provence: L’essor des fake news et l’essor de ce qu’il est convenu d’appeler « post-vérité » semblent témoigner d’un affaiblissement marqué et préoccupant du rôle de la connaissance scientifique, et, plus généralement de l’expertise scientifique au bénéfice de croyances religieuses ou profanes et de la pure rhétorique. L’objet de cette table-ronde est d’affiner ce jugement et d’en analyser les implications pour les choix publics, les débats de société, la démocratie et l’avenir des lumières.

Inequality is a defining challenge of our time. Recent waves of globalization, notably in international trade and finance, have done much to reduce global inequality, and the gap between richest and poorest is widening. While extreme poverty has been reduced, income and wealth are increasingly concentrated. Most economies are growing, but the labour share of national income is declining, and large portions of the world’s workforce have experienced real wage stagnation. And while women’s economic contributions are growing, gender inequalities are persistent. All this has led to the growth of damaging and unacceptable inequalities, a situation where everybody loses. It is thus a critical time for decision on actions for an equitable future, which requires strong and coordinated responses at the global level. This session will examine what needs to be done at the international and regional levels to reduce inequality and how the multilateral system can work together in a more coherent manner.

Bridging Divides through Inclusive Growth: Gabriela Ramos at the 2018 OECD Forum.
At age 15, 5% of boys in OECD countries want to work in information technology (ICT). And girls? 0.5%. With society digitalising fast and the current gender gap in science/technology/engineering/maths (STEM) widening, the future still looks to be a “man’s, man’s, man’s world”. But Gabriela Ramos, OECD Chief of Staff and Sherpa to the G20, is betting against James Brown. She urges girls to set their ambitions high and calls on policy makers to break down the policy barriers that are holding women back.

In times of growing economic inequality, improving equity in education becomes more urgent.

A decade after the global financial crisis, deep scars remain. Despite recent data signalling a closing of the income inequality gap between the highest and lowest earners, this has been accompanied by mounting economic insecurity, wage stagnation and – particularly since Brexit – rising inflation. The shock of the financial crisis might have been weathered by buoyant employment, particularly at the low end of the labour market, but this too has been accompanied by rising in-work poverty. Is ‘inclusive growth’ a utopian oxymoron, or the means to fairer, more sustainable economies? How can it be achieved locally and nationally? What are the implications for global capitalism and the process of globalisation? What are the economic choices and trade-offs we might need to face if we are to respond to the ‘politics of the left behind’? Speakers: Gabriela Ramos, OECD Chief of Staff; Hon Wayne Swan MP, Former DPM and Treasurer of Australia; Indy Johar, architect, co- founder of 00, and member of the RSA Inclusive Growth Commission Chair: Rowan Conway, Director of Innovation and Development, RSA.
