Then we switch gears and sit down with Ravi Srinivasan to talk about the other big news from India’s demonetisation – what it really means and why fintech there is so happy about it!
Finally, we sit down with John Hope Bryant, American Banker Innovator of the Year, and author of ‘How the Poor Can Save Capitalism’, to talk about his programme ‘Operation Hope’, and his mission to finish the work of the Freedman Bank started by Abraham Lincoln.
