Globalization, Technological Change, and Inequality:
Jeffrey Sachs and Paul Krugman in Conversation

Jeffrey Sachs and Paul Krugman, two great economic minds, engage in an illuminating discussion moderated by Gillian Tett of the Financial Times. Since the late 20th century, globalization has accompanied widening inequality in both rich and poor countries, despite a decline in global inequality. In the US, globalization and technological change are often blamed for exacerbating income inequality. The panelists will shed light on these complex issues and how they relate to recent economic crises. Co-sponsored by the Ph.D. Program in Economics.
