The Cambridge Judge Business Debate podcast series, featuring faculty and others associated with Cambridge Judge Business School and the broader Cambridge community, is designed to shed light on important topics within the broad research and teaching remit of Cambridge Judge Business School – including issues relating to management, trade, technology and the global economy.
The podcasts are hosted by Michael Kitson, University Senior Lecturer in International Macroeconomics at Cambridge Judge.
Topics covered so far in the podcasts include globalisation, which as described by Michael Kitson “goes back to before the Industrial Revolution, and there are periods where it has stalled and gone into reverse”, and inequality in all its forms, which explored rising wage gaps and was recorded just days before International Women’s Day 2018.
