Profile of Joe Stiglitz

Economic history may be boring, but it's often fascinating to read about great economists and how they got to where they did.  Not least, if you do have some ideas about studying economics further, you can get a nice feel for it by reading profiles of other economists.  The IMF website has this profile on Joe Stiglitz which is very interesting.

Stiglitz has written an awful lot of great stuff, hence why he's got a Nobel Prize in economics.  You may be aware of some of his books, notably Globalisation and its Discontents.

  1. Many thanks for the link, very interesting profile! Incidentally, I'm just reading "Globalization and its Discontents" at the moment, and finding it a great read - it makes me want to learn more about economics and how economies work. :)
