Joseph E. Stiglitz - Power, People, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Growing up in Gary, Indiana, Stiglitz knew first-hand the benefits of a healthy industrial city. On a recent visit, however, he saw how policies designed for the sake of big business have hurt workers, all but destroyed the middle class, and led to crippling income inequality. Arguing that we can do better, Stiglitz, the Nobel-laureate economist and one of Time’s 100 Most Influential Individuals, rejects free-market fundamentalism and outlines specific steps we can take to tame market excess and promote collective action on a progressive agenda, geared to creating opportunity for all rather than generating wealth for the few.
