"Joseph Stiglitz is our most reliable guide to international economics. He is that rare economist who can make the complex issue of globalization intelligible to a non-academic audience. I found his presentation to be wonderfully informative, and, most important of all, imbued with a powerful social conscience, a profound concern for the poor of the planet."
- Howard Zinn, best-selling author of A People's History of the United States
"Stiglitz is able to cut through the jargon and explain the complex in simple terms. He does an excellent job of describing dense topics - trade barriers, the global reserve system - in a language that’s understandable and accessible. You don’t have to be an economist or a politician to make sense of his explanations." - USA Today
"Stiglitz attacks the assumption that globalization is operating according to Adam Smith’s principles, and takes particular aim at the hypocrisy of rich countries professing to help emerging nations." - Newsweek
