Capitalism in crisis?

In both developed economies and major emerging markets, there is a growing trend of concentration of wealth at the top percentile, while in the West a stagnant middle class places growing demands on a burgeoning welfare state. Is this becoming a threat to future growth and is it straining the political fabric of capitalist societies? What can and should be done to meet social demands, without sacrificing growth? RT presenter Peter Lavelle is joined by Ronnie Goldberg, Olga Golodets, Angel Gurria, Vladimir Mau, Hans-Joerg Rudloff, Armen Sarkissian, and Andy Xie. In co-operation with the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum.
