Joseph Stiglitz (2014) - Why Capitalism is Failing

Joseph Stiglitz (2014) - Why Capitalism is Failing

Regarded as one of the best economic minds of his generation, Joseph E. Stiglitz is the winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in economics. His work has helped explain the circumstances in which markets do not work well and how selective government intervention can improve their performance. He was a member of the Council of Economic Advisors from 1993-95, during the Clinton administration, and served as CEA chairman from 1995-97. He then became chief economist and senior vice president of the World Bank from 1997-2000.

Stiglitz helped create a new branch of economics, "The Economics of Information," which explores the consequences of information asymmetries and pioneers such pivotal concepts as adverse selection and moral hazard that have now become standard tools not only for theorists, but also for policy analysts. He has made major contributions to macroeconomics and monetary theory, to development economics and trade theory, to public and corporate finance, to the theories of industrial organization and rural organization, and to the theories of welfare economics and income and wealth distribution. In the 1980s, he helped revive interest in the economics of R&D.

His latest book, The Price of Inequality, addresses the causes of inequality, the reasons it's growing so rapidly, and its economic impacts. In a controversial conclusion, Stiglitz states that redistributing wealth from the bottom up would produce far greater overall gains in our economies without adversely impacting the financial elites.
Stiglitz was born in Gary, Indiana, in 1943. A graduate of Amherst College, he received his PhD from MIT in 1967, became a full professor at Yale in 1970, and in 1979 was awarded the John Bates Clark Award, given biennially by the American Economic Association to the economist under 40 who has made the most significant contribution to the field. He has taught at Princeton, Stanford, and MIT, and was the Drummond Professor and a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. He is now Professor of Economics and Finance at Columbia University in New York.

Recognized around the world as a leading economic educator, he has written textbooks that have been translated into more than a dozen languages. He founded one of the leading economics journals, The Journal of Economic Perspectives, and the best-selling author of Globalization and Its Discontents, The Roaring Nineties, Making Globalization Work, and Freefall. A talented and effective public speaker, Joseph Stiglitz is a man who knows the ins and outs of our country's economic system and has the tools to explain how slight shifts in policy can have major ramifications.

The Fall: A Chronicle of the Financial Crisis

The current financial crisis didn’t start with the housing bubble – it started with policies enacted by previous Presidents, starting with Ronald Reagan all the way through to President George W. Bush. Stiglitz explores how free market financial policy and government regulation, or lack thereof, led to the 2007 financial crisis. This fast-paced presentation includes an overview of the current state of the economy and also what businesses and financial institutions can expect during economic recovery.

I Dissent: Unconventional Economic Wisdom

Joseph Stiglitz’ commentary on current United State economic policy and global financial news is controversial, provocative, and informative. It is also refreshingly direct. He provides audiences with solid context that can be used to add further dimensions to their work while gaining greater insight into the latest headlines.

Making Globalization Work

Based on his book by the same name, Joseph Stiglitz explores why globalization is failing so many people and what must be done create stable economies. This presentation specifically demonstrates the intersection between these key components: trade relationships, the gap between rich and poor, China/America, global warming and pollution, developing & emerging economies, and international governance/regulatory bodies.
