Thomas Piketty At CUNY With Paul Krugman And Joe Stiglitz
This is a link to a panel discussion with Thomas Piketty and a distinguished group of discussants which includes two Nobel Prize winners (Krugman and Stiglitz). The video streaming begins at 6:00 PM( Eastern Time) April 16th. Paul Krugman has left Princeton to take a position at CUNY which has an institute that specializes in research on income inequality. Joe Stiglitz has written a book on the costs of income inequality. This should be a very stimulating discussion. The attention that is being given to Piketty, after the publication of his book in English, is amazing. It is bound to influence the economics profession which has basically ignored the issue of income inequality.
