June 26 – Joseph Fisher Lecture – ‘Price of Inequality’

The Don Dunstan Foundation in association with the University of Adelaide and the Economic Society of South Australia invite you to join us to hear acclaimed international economist and recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics, Professor Joseph Stiglitz present on the ‘Price of Inequality’.

With a New York Times bestselling book of the same name, this year’s Joseph Fisher Lecture promises to be one to remember as Professor Stiglitz ‘draws on his deep understanding of economics to show that growing inequality is not inevitable: moneyed interests compound their wealth by stifling true, dynamic capitalism.’

While one reviewer comments ‘Politics shapes the market, he argues, but politics has been hijacked by a financial elite that has feathered its own nest’.

Professor Joseph Stiglitz is University Professor at Columbia University in New York and Chair of the University’s Committee on Global Thought.
