Of all those arguing that the world economy was being badly managed in the interests of the rich in the 1990s and early 2000s, the most articulate was Joseph Stiglitz. This week we read his new book on how to do globalization right.
Surf over to http://delong.typepad.com/pe101/virtual_discussions/ and then to http://delong.typepad.com/PE101/2007/08/web-assignme-13.html. Write a comment of at least 200 words on what you think of some aspect of Stiglitz's position on how the world should be governed. Contribute to the discussion that is ongoing at http://delong.typepad.com/PE101/2007/08/web-assignment-13.html--that is, react and respond to not just Stiglitz but, to the extent it is appropriate, the earlier posters and commenters on the webpage.
