The Inc Tank

The 21st century is a time of rapid technological change and the convergence of technologies including AI, synthetic biology, blockchain, and big data. Individuals, businesses, education providers and governments are struggling to design appropriate ways to manage risk, remain relevant, and plan for the future.  The Inc. Tank podcast, hosted by the Center’s Executive Director Christina Elson, provides a forum for thought leaders to share their expertise in disruptive technologies with the public. The show talks about big issues around technology, government, education, social media, transportation, finance, healthcare, food safety, climate and energy and space, and explores that role of individuals, businesses and government in creating a prosperous future.

This is Capitalism

Entrepreneurship is the engine of capitalism. The creation of new goods and services, sometimes dislodging existing ones, but just as often providing for new wants and needs, supports human prosperity, health, and welfare. This Is Capitalism is an initiative project that explores entrepreneurs and their role in shaping contemporary capitalism.  Documentaries profile well-known entrepreneurs and the skills, capabilities, and conditions that enabled their success.

An ongoing podcast called CEO Stories talks with current leaders about how they work in the market economy to solve problem they’re passionate about.  Articles and videos discuss the importance of diversity in business and need to include stakeholder voices in in shaping a dynamic and expansive 21st century economy.  This is Capitalism is produced by Wake Forest alumnus Warren Stephens (MBA `81), the chairman, CEO, and president of Stephens Inc.
