Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Simply and eloquently, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz explains how the world's economy works. Drawing not only from his academic expertise but also from time spent on the ground in countries around the world, Stiglitz offers fresh thinking about the questions and challenges facing all of us - from well-off Americans to those mired in Third World poverty. This five part series will appeal to experts and non-experts alike, as Stiglitz's clear and concise reasoning about the complexities of globalization is revealed.

Where is the World Going, Mr. Stiglitz? includes over six hours of presentations by one of the world's most read and respected experts in economics, one who "cuts through the jargon and explains the complex in simple terms." (USA Today) Viewers get a crash course in the world economy as Stiglitz discusses globalization and its effects, global warming and the environment, trade and immigration, security and terrorism, and ultimately, the future of humankind.

Recognized around the world as a leading economic educator, Joseph Stiglitz is a Nobel Prize Winner in Economics. His resume is impressive: Chairman of Bill Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors; Chief Economist at the World Bank; consultant to several world leaders; and Professorships at Yale, Princeton, Oxford, Stanford, and, currently, Columbia University. His books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages, including the worldwide best-seller 'Globalization and Its Discontents' and its newly released follow-up 'Making Globalization Work'. He also founded a leading economics journal, The Journal of Economic Perspectives.

Review

Stiglitz does an excellent job of describing dense topics - trade barriers, the global reserve system - in a language that's understandable and accessible. You don't have to be an economist or a politician to make sense of his explanations. --USA Today

Stiglitz attacks the assumption that globalization is operating according to Adam Smith's principles, and takes particular aim at the hypocrisy of rich countries professing to help emerging nations. --Newsweek

Stiglitz is that rare economist who can make the complex issue of globalization intelligible to a non-academic audience. I found his presentation to be wonderfully informative, and, most important of all, imbued with a powerful social conscience, a profound concern for the poor of the planet. --Howard Zinn, best-selling author of A People's History of the United States

This DVD provides an excellent overview of the key concepts related to the global economy and globalization. It is over six hours of Stiglitz speaking directly to the camera as he explains several global economic polices and concepts that are complex yet understandable given his explanation.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Mr. Stiglitz seems to think that is the responsibility of US citizens and corporations to eliminate poverty throughout the world, even if it means that American Corporations would lose money, American consumers would pay higher prices and even it it's necessary to file a case against the USA in the WTO courts. Most of his criticisms of the World Bank and the IMF aeem to be essentially true, at least to me, though they may be somewhat exaggerated. Socialists, one-worlders, and altruists will love this DVD set. Conservatives should listen, as I did, because it's always a good idea to see what the opposition is thinking and proposing.
