Just watching these two old friends on stage together, both liberal icons in economics and academia, is a true delight.
Joseph Stiglitz and Robert Reich reminisce here about their days in the Clinton Administration, recalling the pushback from fellow cabinet members for labeling certain policies “corporate welfare” and criticizing excessive salaries for C-suite executives. They have issues with Obama, too, particularly on trade. And don’t get them started on Super PACs and the influence of money on politics! Will they be there for Hillary in 2016?
For a dose of humor along with a lesson on the politics of income inequality across America, treat yourself to some Stiglitz and Reich.
