Joseph Stiglitz is one of the most influential public thinkers of our time. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, advisor to presidents, and University Professor at Columbia, Stiglitz is the author of numerous best-selling books, including Globalization and Its Discontents (2001) and, most recently, Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy (2010). A specialist in market information and macro-economic governance, Stiglitz is a leading critic of global financial institutions and their lax regulators, as well as a trenchant purveyor of policy fixes designed to restart growth, improve infrastructure, and create jobs.
At UH, Dr. Stiglitz also presented the Stephen and Marylyn Pauley Lecture on Sustainability.
