Joseph E. Stiglitz presents People, Power, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent
In conversation with Felicia Wong
In his new book, People, Power, and Profits, Nobel Prize-winning economist and bestselling author Joseph E. Stiglitz challenges us to throw off the free market fundamentalists and reclaim our economy. Stiglitz lays out the various and insidious ways in which the system is rigged against the average citizen and tilted in favor of big business and the wealthy, pairing this analysis with an outline of the bold steps America should take to lead us into a fairer, more prosperous, and more environmentally sound future. An authoritative account of the predictable dangers of free market fundamentalism and the foundations of progressive capitalism, People, Power, and Profits shows us an America in crisis, but also lights a path through this challenging time. Felicia Wong, President and CEO of the Roosevelt Institute, joins Stiglitz in conversation for this virtual mid-day book talk, which will also include his recommendations for solutions to the economic havoc being wrought by COVID-19, and our government’s insufficient responses so far.
