Description

In this episode, Santiago Borio and David Stern delve into the use of language and its implications in today’s sensitive cultural landscape. Motivated by a prior discussion that mentioned ‘white’ and ‘black’ economies, and recognising the potential associations of this terminology, they explore how such terms have evolved and consider potential alternatives. They highlight the importance of tolerance and resilience as well as the necessity of careful use of language to avoid misinterpretation. The episode reaffirms IDEMS’ commitment to critical assessment and openness to constructive criticism, recognises that we will not always ‘get it right’, and concludes with a call for greater tolerance and self-awareness in our daily communications.
