In his appearance at the Sydney Opera House, Nobel Laureate (Economics) Joseph Stiglitz gives a talk entitled, ‘Why economics matters: Looking at Global Challenges through an economic lens’.
One of the world’s best-known economists, Stiglitz is the former Chief Economist of the World Bank and former Chair of Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisors. A Professor at Columbia University in New York and Chair of Columbia University’s Committee on Global Thought, Stiglitz has helped create a new branch of economics, ‘The Economics of Information’, which has become a standard tool of both theorists and policy analysts. This public forum is co-hosted by the Economic Society of Australia, the Australia Institute and Catalyst.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
