Governments’ lack of response to rising inequality is not a problem of knowledge or public support. The problem is that those whose needs are being ignored must find a way to make themselves heard.
Is our economic system fundamentally broken? Has radical inequality become our inevitable global future, or can significant overhaul of public policy “fix it”? Professor Stiglitz will discuss these topics in conversation with Dr Alexandra Heath, Head of the Economic Analysis Department at the Reserve Bank of Australia.
On 15 November, Professor Stiglitz will deliver the much-anticipated 2018 City of Sydney Peace Prize Lecture and will be awarded the Prize at the Sydney Town Hall.
