Randall Lane, Forbes: ‘Drama Critics of Capitalism’

Subscribe to the Outside In podcast:

Randall Lane has interviewed the world’s power players. Jeff Bezos, Emmanuel Macron, Donald Trump. Just to name a few. Now we’re interviewing him. As the chief content officer and editor of Forbes Magazine, Lane is reinventing Forbes’s editorial coverage — and its business — to reach its highest-ever readership. Lane talks about Forbes’ new emphasis on young entrepreneurs, “microbeats,” expanding global coverage, and how he’s building the “biggest newsroom in the world.”

Listen to this episode to learn:

  • Why Forbes focuses on the people behind capitalism — from those who are succeeding to those who are polluting the system
  • Why Lane believes entrepreneurial capitalism — and the free exchange of ideas — has always been the best way to distribute and create mass prosperity
  • How the Forbes “30 Under 30” is a harbinger for where the world is headed and who will be leading it for the next 50 years
  • What famous figures like Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, and Kylie Jenner all have in common
