Portrait

Joseph E. Stiglitz received his PhD from MIT in 1967, became a full professor at Yale in 1970, and was awarded the John Bates Clark Award in 1979, which is given biennially by the American Economic Association to an economist under 40 who has made the most significant contribution to the field. He has taught at Princeton, Stanford, and MIT, and was the Drummond Professor and a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. He is now a professor at Columbia University and co-chair of Columbia University's Committee on Global Thought. He is also the co-founder and co-president of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue at Columbia. In 2001, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics for his analyses of markets with asymmetric information, and was a lead author of the 1995 Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. In 2011, Time named Professor Stiglitz one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Professor Stiglitz was a member of the Council of Economic Advisers from 1993-95, during the Clinton administration, and served as its chairman from 1995-97. He then became chief economist and senior vice president of the World Bank from 1997-2000. In 2008, he was asked by the French President Nicolas Sarkozy to chair the Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress, which released its final report in September 2009. In 2009, he was appointed by the President of the United Nations General Assembly as chair of the Commission of Experts on Reform of the International Financial and Monetary System, which also released its report in September 2009. Professor Stiglitz helped create a new branch of economics-The Economics of Information-exploring the consequences of information asymmetries and pioneering such pivotal concepts as adverse selection and moral hazard, which have now become standard tools not only for theorists but also for policy analysts. He has made major contributions to the theories of welfare economics and of income and wealth distribution, and his work has helped explain the circumstances in which markets do not work well and how selective government intervention can improve market performance. Recognized around the world as a leading economic educator, Professor Stiglitz has written books that have been translated into more than a dozen languages. He also founded one of the leading economics journals, The Journal of Economic Perspectives. His book, Globalization and Its Discontents (Norton, 2001), has been translated into 35 languages and has sold more than a million copies worldwide. Other recent books include The Roaring Nineties (Norton); Towards a New Paradigm in Monetary Economics (Cambridge University Press), with Bruce Greenwald; Fair Trade for All (Oxford University Press), with Andrew Charlton; Making Globalization Work (Norton and Penguin/ Allen Lane, 2006); The Three Trillion Dollar War: The True Cost of the Iraq Conflict (Norton and Penguin/ Allen Lane, 2008), with Linda Bilmes at Harvard University; Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy (Norton and Penguin/ Allen Lane, 2010); and The Price of Inequality: How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future (Norton and Penguin/ Allen Lane, 2012).

Rhetorische Übertreibungen, aber gute inhaltliche Arbeit

Stiglitz ist als Professor an der Columbia University und ehemaliger Vorsitzender des Council of Economic Advisers unter Bill Clinton ein gefragter Experte in Fragen der Globalisierung. Seine Untersuchung von Informationsassymetrien brachte ihm 2001 bereits den Wirtschaftsnobelpreis ein. Mit seinem Buch Globalization and Its Discontents war er in der Lage zentrale Probleme bei der politischen Gestaltung des Globalisierungsprozesses aufzuzeigen. Hieran knüpft Making Globalization Work an und liefert neben einer erneuten Fehleranalyse durchdachte Rezepte, um die Globalisierung besser zu gestalten. Stiglitz Meinung bezüglich des Umgangs mit der Globalisierung ist eine von vielen, aber eine der fundierteren. Klar auf der linken Seite des politischen Spektrums wehrt sich Stiglitz jedoch (ganz Ökonom) gegen jede Form des gedankenlosen "Globalisierungsbashings" a la Attac. Für ihn ist die Globalisierung, sofern sie richtig gestaltet wird, ein Prozess, der Wohlstand fördert und die weltweite Ungleichheit verringert. Dazu soll sein Buch beitragen. Die Lektüre ist jedem zu empfehlen, der sich für Expertenmeinungen zu Problemen und der Gestaltung der Globalisierung interessiert.
