Episode Summary

Making Globalization Work
Making Globalization Work with Joseph StiglitzJoseph Stiglitz's new book, "Making Globalization Work," is an imaginative and, above all, practical vision for a successful and equitable world. In clear language and compelling anecdotes, Stiglitz focuses on policies that truly work, offering fresh new thinking about the questions that shape the globalization debate, including a plan to restructure a global financial system made unstable by America's debt, ideas for how countries can grow without degrading the environment, a framework for free and fair global trade, and much more. Stiglitz reveals that economic globalization continues to outpace both the political structures and the moral sensitivity required to ensure a just and sustainable world. And he makes plain the real work that all nations must undertake to realize that goal - World Affairs Council of Northern CaliforniaThe World Affairs Council was founded in 1947 out of the interest generated by the founding of the United Nations in San Francisco in 1945.
