Joseph Stiglitz talks on Globalisation and Development

Tuesday 29 January, 5pm
Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE with video link in D202, Clement House

To launch a new series of significant Miliband Lectures on Global Economic Governance, Nobel Prize winner Professor Joseph Stiglitz will be speaking on Globalisation and Development on Tuesday 29 January at LSE.

He will be examining the failures of the policies inspired by the 'Washington consensus' in situations of transition and crises, and exploring strategies that make for successful development.

Joseph Stiglitz is Professor of Finance and Economics at Columbia University. He was awarded the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, having made fundamental contributions to every subfield of economic theory - microeconomics, macroeconomics, industrial organization, international economics, labour economics, financial economics, and development economics. He has been a professor at Yale, Princeton, Oxford, and Stanford, has served as chairman in President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisers and as chief economist of the World Bank.

The Miliband Lectures on Global Economic Governance have been established by David Held, who holds the Graham Wallas Chair of Political Science at LSE, with the help of the Global Dimensions programme. The series will explore key issues on global economic governance throughout the year, and will continue with:

  • Wednesday 27 February, Professor Robert Wade on Economic Globalisation, Inequality and Debt
  • Wednesday 20 March, Professor Robert Goodin on Globalising Justice
  • Tuesday 7 May, Professor Robert O Keohane on Global Governance and Democratic Accountability
  • Thursday 6 June, Professor John G Ruggie on Global Governance and Corporate Responsibility.

The series will continue in the autumn term.


The event is ticketed but there is a video link open to the public in room D202, Clement House. This opens at 5pm and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
