This week on Here’s the Thing, Alec talks about the financial crisis with Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize-winning economist. Stiglitz shows no restraint when unleashing criticism of presidential policies — on both sides. Of President Barack Obama’s financial-industry rescue plan, Stiglitz said that whomever designed it was “either in the pocket of the banks or … incompetent.” Stiglitz talks to Alec about growing up in Gary, Indiana and how that impacted his decision to become an economist.
