Three titans of American economic thought come together in Conversations On the Green’s sixth forum of the season. Two Nobel laureates in economics, Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman, are joined by Danny Meyer, a respected businessman and restauranteur.

This is the first time these three giants have ever debated. They will discuss how to repair the economy amidst the worst economic crisis in almost a century and the once-in-a-generation shift now underway in economic thinking. They also will examine how to exploit the ongoing calamity and contain the jaw-dropping risks in an effort to launch an era of prosperity like those that followed the Great Depression and World War II.

Originally aired Saturday, October 3, 2020 on CPTV.
