Humanities in business

Today Riksbankens Jubileumsfond arranges a whole day seminar at Fotografiska with focus on how humanities can make a difference in business, or should I rather say, outside academy. Why is it so difficult to make people with different skills collaborate across borders, from both perspectives!? Has education become increasingly market-driven, career-oriented, and impoverished in its attention to humanities? I will end the day by gathering a group of interesting people and ask for their opinion, namely Eva Swartz Grimaldi, Fredrik Lindström, Lars Trägårdh, Lotta Gröning and Tobias Nielsen.
