Why has inequality increased in the Western world, and what can we do about it? Join us for An Evening with Joseph Stiglitz, as he addresses economic inequality.

Joseph Stiglitz   The Price of Inequality book cover     

Joseph Stiglitz, author of The Euro, The Price of Inequality, and The Great Divide, among other titles, received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2001 and the John Bates Clark Medal in 1979, and is professor at Columbia University and chief economist of the Roosevelt Institute. A former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank and chair of the U.S. President’s Council of Economic Advisors, he also founded the Initiative for Policy Dialogue.

“[Stiglitz] is an insanely great economist.”—Paul Krugman, New York Times

"Stiglitz realizes that deepening inequality in our country is not an unlucky act of nature, but a consequence of the policies we have chosen. This lively book suggests a whole menu of policy changes to move us toward a more widely shared prosperity."—Robert Solow, winner of the Nobel Prize
