Economy. Labor. Climate change.

These are the issues that are front-of-mind for attendees of this week’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. On a special episode direct from the conference, Stephanie Flanders dives in with a leader from each field.

On the economy, JPMorgan Chase International Chairman Jacob Frenkel, a former Bank of Israel Governor and a 33-time Davos attendee, talks about why we’re still feeling the impact of the financial crisis. Next, Christy Hoffman, head of the international labor federation UNI, discusses how unions can become more relevant in a gig-economy world.

And finally, Jonathan Woetzel of the McKinsey Global Institute outlines a new report looking at the broad impact of global warming, and how companies are really just in the early stages of incorporating climate risk into their strategies.
