More information

The Asia and the Pacific Policy Society is a community of scholars, policymakers, researchers and students. It is the first international association to link people working across academic disciplines in the region.

The Global Financial Crisis radically changed the view and role of economics and gave the world a worrying new perspective on the spread and significance of economic shocks. But was the worldwide policy response right, and will it happen again?

On Monday 30 June, Nobel Laureate and distinguished Fellow of Asia and the Pacific Policy Society, Professor Joseph Stiglitz, will take a closer look at the GFC and policy responses in a very special talk at ANU.

In this landmark public talk, Stiglitz will examine the origins of the GFC, analyse the economic policy responses and discuss whether the crisis really has been averted.

He will also look at what’s right, and what’s wrong, with contemporary policy stances.

Professor Stiglitz is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading and influential economists. He is University Professor at Columbia University in New York, having previously taught at Oxford, Yale, MIT, Stanford, and Princeton.

In 2001, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics for his analyses of markets with asymmetric information, and he 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. He is now serving as President of the International Economic Association.

Please note, this event is now fully booked.
