A Conversation with Joseph Stiglitz
Join this exclusive FCC Zoom discussion with Joseph Stiglitz, a professor at Columbia University, author and a Nobel laureate in economics. He will discuss his views on a number of policy and political issues including the economic fallout from COVID-19, how he views the legacy of the Trump administration, the state of globalization and the prospects of China’s economy. One of the most respected economists in the world, he has recently condemned President Trump’s protectionism as “ugliness” and worries that populist authoritarian figures are seizing the pandemic crisis to strengthen their positions and weaken democracy. Moderated by FCC President, Jodi Schneider.
