As the 2020 election race barrels forward with nearly 20 Democratic candidates, DN! speaks with Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz about the policy platforms of progressive hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, including Warren’s plan to break up big tech companies and cancel student debt and Sanders’s commitment to democratic socialism, which Stiglitz compares to “what in Europe is called social democracy, sometimes called the welfare state.”
Stiglitz has a new book out titled People, Power, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent.
