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.
