    G20: Remarks for Session 2 - Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth

    We therefore need a “copernician” change in our approach to the growth – inequality nexus: let’s not think growth first, and inequality thereafter but let’s consider both of them, together, in their circularity.
