The Principal of the University of Edinburgh, Timothy OShea said in the video that: The University is delighted to welcome Joseph Stiglitz to speak as part of our Enlightenment Lecture Series. He is one of the giants of economics, his contributions across every part of the discipline are recognised the world over. He has already played a major role in shaping events in the worldas recent economic history, and now he is set to shape our future with his ground breaking theories on how globalization needs to work for disenfranchised peoples worldwide.
