A prominent economist and influential professor (The John and Natty McArthur University professor at Harvard), Rebecca is one of the world’s most articulate, insightful and persuasive scholars focused on driving large-scale change. A leading authority in organizational and strategic change for more than thirty years, today her research, teaching and speaking centers on purpose-driven capitalism and the role that business leaders at every level can play in reimagining our current system.


“It is possible to create a better, more sustainable future. But only if we act with urgency – and in concert with one another.” This belief has driven Rebecca’s work for the last ten years and is at the heart of her latest endeavor: “Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire,” (Hachette, 2020) a book that spells out how business can become a critical ally in the battle to rethink capitalism. In the classroom, Rebecca inspires her students in “Reimagining Capitalism,” the most successful MBA elective course launched at Harvard Business School in the last five years. She also teaches in HBS’ Executive Education program. Additionally, she is a Research Fellow at the National Bureau for Economic Research, a sustainability advisor to several of the world’s largest companies, and a board member at Amgen and IDEXX Laboratories, both S&P 500 Companies. Her research explores the degree to which the private sector can play a major role in building a more sustainable economy, offering both a new intellectual framing and a plausible path forward for a capitalism that has lost its commitment to freedom and prosperity in the single-minded pursuit of maximizing shareholder value. Rebecca sits on the boards of Idexx Laboratories and of CERES. Her most recent publications include “A Political Economy of Justice”, edited with Danielle Allen and Yochai Benkler and “Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire,” which was shortlisted for the FT/McKinsey 2020 Business Book of the Year.
