Welcome to the first episode in our summer series, where we take a look back at some of the great conversations we had in 2022.
Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz is one of the world’s great thinkers. Professor Stiglitz won the 2001 Nobel Prize for his ground-breaking work in economics.
Professor Stiglitz’s work in pushing back against neo-liberal free market economic models and arguing for the importance of empowering workers and unions to build a more equitable economy is revered.
He served as an advisor in the Clinton White House, holds a professorship at Columbia University, and was the first person the Greek government called for help when it faced a financial meltdown in 2010.
He was is in Australia in July of 2022 to talk with Unions, workers, and the newly elected Labor government, and he joined me in conversation.
