In this episode of the McKinsey Global Institute’s Forward Thinking podcast, co-host Michael Chui talks with Matthew J. Slaughter, Paul Danos Dean and Earl C. Daum 1924 Professor of International Business at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

● What can be done to achieve the benefits of globalization while making sure distributional challenges are addressed?
● How have the demands placed on leaders in the 21st century changed?
● In late 2021, there is a lot of discussion about supply chain issues. What is going on here and what is going to happen?
