In this episode of the McKinsey Global Institute’s Forward Thinking podcast, host Michael Chui speaks with Laura Tyson, Distinguished Professor of the Graduate School at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley. Tyson shares her journey in economics, from discovering Econ 1 in college to chairing the President’s Council of Economic Advisers. She also answers questions like:
• Are we in a “golden age” for women in economics?
• What impact has the pandemic had on gender equality?
• What can other countries learn from Germany’s apprenticeship and skills programs in preparing for the future of work?
• Why doesn’t she expect a slow recovery after the pandemic, as we experienced after the global financial crisis?
• Why aren’t predictions about the economy more accurate, like predicting the weather?

This conversation was recorded in June 2021. To read a transcript of this episode, visit: https://mck.co/lauratyson
