Masters in Business
How about a bit more? Get inside the minds of some of the smartest investors on Wall Street. Once a week, investor and author Barry Ritholtz enjoys a talk with one of the most important business people of the day. Each episode features an in-depth discussion of a financial or economic topic. He recently spoke to Binyamin Appelbaum, editor-in-chief of business and economics at the New York Times, who recently published his book The Economists’ Hour: False Prophets, Free Markets and the Fracture of Society.
Leadership is everywhere
TV series such as ‘De Collega’s’ (The Co-workers) and ‘Het Eiland’ (The island) have already proclaimed the joyful message: the leadership we know from and have come to expect over the past decades no longer exists. Anyone who still wants to play the authoritarian leader in these fast-changing times is likely to just put themselves out of the running. Instead of that, authentic and shared leadership is what we get today. In six episodes the Antwerp Management School launches ‘Leadership is everywhere’, a podcast series that addresses the cliché image of leadership and shows that leadership is everywhere in our environment (even in the Zoo), and part of ourselves. Fascinating for every entrepreneur.
Anyone who is even marginally involved in figures and economics knows the best-sellers Freakonomics & Superfreakonomics. There has also been a podcast for fans for many years. Freakonomics focuses on one thing, and one thing alone: ‘discovering the hidden side of things’. Every week, Stephen J. Dubner discusses things you always thought you knew (but which you were apparently wrong about) and things you thought you never wanted to know (but now you do). From figures about sleep and big data in the erotic sector, to the Brexit and tips on how to survive boring meetings, all of this is addressed in this incredibly interesting podcast.
Every week Bloomberg’s Joe Weisenthal and Tracy Alloway take you on a journey to the world of international markets, economy and finance. What is the impact of negative interest rates on the world? What role will the central bank fulfil in the future? Or what can the business world learn from archaeology? You’ll learn all about this in Odd Lots.
