  1. Ex Bank of England Governor Mark Carney: building a human-values based economy | RNZ

    Mark Carney is the UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Finance Adviser for COP26. He was Governor of the Bank of England until last year, and prior to that was Governor of the Bank of Canada. His new book, Value(s): Building A Better World For All challenges free market fundamentalism and blames it for damaging the values upon which a good society is based. He calls for change in a post-Covid world, where values of sustainability, solidarity and responsibility are embedded into decision-making as a framework to build a better world.

  2. Ruth Coker Burks: caring for AIDS patients | RNZ

    As a young single mother in Arkansas with no medical training, Ruth Coker Burks cared for around 1000 men dying from AIDS through their final days. This was in the 1980s and 90s when the disease carried such a stigma that patients were shunned by their own families, and neglected by the medical profession at large. She tells the incredible story in her book All The Young Men.
