About This Book

No one has challenged the policies of the international financial community as profoundly as Joseph Stiglitz, the former Chief Economist of the World Bank. In controversial speeches made around the world, Stiglitz has undone the conventional wisdom that dominated policy-making at the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the US Treasury Department.

For the first time, Stiglitz's nine most revealing speeches have been gathered together, covering such topics as the failure of shock therapy and transition economics, the limits of capital market liberalization, the myopia of the Washington consensus, the role of knowledge in markets, the process of developing market institutions and the primacy of openness and worker participation. Along with Dr Ha-Joon Chang's insightful commentary, they form the most powerful representation of Stiglitz's thinking to be found anywhere. A landmark collection of material for economists everywhere.

Reviews

'A powerful collection of key speeches from one of the most controversial economists of our time... The most provocative book on international financial policy to appear for a long time.' —Jeff Madrick, 'Challenge Magazine', contributing columnist, 'New York Times'


'This is a book that puts John Keble in his literary, cultural, political, and theological context as never before. It is essential reading for Students of nineteenth-century English literature as much as of religious history.' —Peter Nockles, author of 'The Oxford Movement in Context'
