Joseph Stiglitz, Ayşe Buğra, Andrew Finkel - Yeni Yoksullar


Dünya ekonomisini neredeyse durma noktasına getiren Covid-19 pandemisinin olumsuz iktisadî etkisini en fazla hissedenler hâlihazırda adaletsiz bir gelir dağılımının ve birçok alanda kendini gösteren eşitsizliğin mağduru olan kesimler oldu. Yoksullar daha da yoksullaştı. Bir de "yeni yoksullar" var. Dünya Bankası "yeni yoksullar"ı, Covid-19 öncesinde, 2020 yılında "yoksul" kategorisine girmesi beklenmeyen, ancak salgından sonra kendilerini bu kategoride bulanlar olarak tanımlıyor ve bu kesimdekilerin sayısını 100 milyon olarak belirliyor. Yine Dünya Bankası'nın tahminlerine göre, 2020'de aşırı yoksulluk yirmi yıldır ilk kez yeniden artış gösterdi. Bizler de Türkiye'de işsizlikten yıldığı, çocuklarının geçimini sağlayamadığı için intihar edenlerin haberlerini okur olduk bir süredir.Dünya ve özel olarak da Türkiye artan yoksullukla nasıl başa çıkabilir? Yoksulların daha da yoksullaşmasını, gelir dağılımı eşitsizliğinin daha da artmasını önlemek için nasıl politikalar izlenmeli? Kamu harcamaları hangi alanlara yönelmeli? Bir yandan salgını kontrol altına tutmayı, öte yandan ekonominin yeniden canlanmasını nasıl sağlayabiliriz? İki değerli profesör, Joseph Stiglitz ve Ayşe Buğra'nın bu konulardaki tartışmasında moderatörlüğü otuz yılı aşkın süredir Türkiye'de gazetecilik yapan Andrew Finkel üstleniyor.Podcast dili İngilizcedir, buluşmanın Türkçe altyazılı video kaydını ise YouTube kanalımızda izleyebilirsiniz.

Joseph Stiglitz – On Getting Carbon Pricing Right

Planet A - Talks on climate change

In the 6th episode of Planet A’s second season, Dan Jørgensen talks with the American economist and Nobel Laureate, Joseph Stiglitz.Stiglitz explains why he is a strong supporter of a “Cross Border Adjustment tax”, which adds the cost of carbon emissions to the price on imported goods and thus prevents carbon leakage. The economist underlines the importance of imposing a higher social cost of carbon and believes it should be upwards of 100 US dollars per emitted ton CO2. Stiglitz and Jørgensen precedes to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of different tools to price carbon, including carbon taxation and “cap and trade” systems such as the European Union Emissions Trading System (ETS).While Stiglitz is a strong proponent of a carbon tax, he advocates for a parallel implementation of political regulation and the use of public investments on research and development, if we are to meet the climate goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement.Stiglitz currently works as a professor at Columbia University but has also taught at several other institutions of higher education including Cambridge, Oxford, Princeton, Stanford and MIT.Aside from his academic career, he has worked as President Bill Clinton’s Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers in the White House and as the Chief Economist of the World Bank. He is also the author of numerous scholarly articles, op-eds in the New York Times and several best-selling books. Most notably, he has authored “Globalization and its discontents”, “The Price of Inequality” and “People, Power and Profits”.

Nobel Prize Winner Joseph Stiglitz on the Way Out from the Crisis

Deep State Radio

We face an extraordinary challenge--a massive economic crisis and a great public health crisis, each feeding into one another. Our government's response thus far has exacerbated both. To recover is going to require big ideas and bold execution from the next president of the United States. Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz offers some of those ideas and thoughts on how a Biden Administration could make them a reality in the latest edition of our Agenda 2021 series. It is essential listening on issues from how to create millions of jobs to how to save our cities and states from an even greater crisis, from how to foster a green recovery to what lessons the G.I. Bill may offer for those thinking about the issue of reparations. Join us!Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/deepstateradio. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Joseph Stiglitz on a Post-COVID-19 Economy

Big Tech

The impact of COVID-19 on the global economy was swift and substantial. Unemployment numbers are reaching depression-era levels and nations are clamouring to unveil stability packages intended to lessen the economic impact. Will these measures work to restore the economic status quo, or is this an opportunity to rethink our economic structures? In this episode of Big Tech, co-hosts David Skok and Taylor Owen speak with Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate economist and a professor at Columbia University, about lessons from past economic crises, and how those lessons apply to the economic fallout of COVID-19. This time around, tech companies command much of the market, and many of them are experiencing stability, if not growth. Zoom and Netflix, for example, have seen surges in their share price. Unfortunately, the tech industry introduces new labour-market issues: digital platforms often require fewer employees to operate than other industries like manufacturing or air travel. With comparatively small staff numbers, tax breaks and growing monopolies, technology companies have an outsize effect on society. Stiglitz argues that taxing these companies in “an adequate way” could have a positive social impact. “The fact is: we lowered the corporate taxes rather than trying to capture back for the public some of the enormous profits that are accruing to the tech giants,” he explains. These companies could emerge from the pandemic more dominant than ever.

Why the market fails in a crisis (with Joseph Stiglitz)

Pitchfork Economics with Nick Hanauer

One of the central theories of classical economics is that markets respond quickly and efficiently to changes in demand. But the pandemic clearly demonstrates that the markets aren’t the efficient adapters that classic economists believe them to be. Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz explains why the tendency to believe in the market is one of the most deeply rooted trickle-down myths, and why government intervention is the best way forward through this economic downturn. Joseph Stiglitz is a Nobel laureate economist and a professor at Columbia University. He is also the co-chair of the High-Level Expert Group on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress at the OECD, and the Chief Economist of the Roosevelt Institute. In 2011, Stiglitz was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Known for his pioneering work on asymmetric information, Stiglitz focuses on income distribution, risk, corporate governance, public policy, macroeconomics, and globalization. His most recent book, People, Power, and Profits, was just released in paperback. Twitter: @JosephEStiglitzFurther reading: People, Power, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent: https://www.indiebound.org/book/9781324004219Four Priorities for Pandemic Relief Efforts: https://rooseveltinstitute.org/four-priorities-for-covid19-pandemic-relief-efforts/Why Our Affluent Society Is Facing Shortages in the Face of the Coronavirus Pandemic: https://time.com/5811505/affluent-society-shortages-coronavirus-pandemic/Deficit Lessons for the Pandemic From the 2008 Crisis: https://prospect.org/economy/deficit-lessons-pandemic-2008-crisis/How the Economy Will Look After the Coronavirus Pandemic: https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/15/how-the-economy-will-look-after-the-coronavirus-pandemic/Top economist: US coronavirus response is like ‘third world’ country: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/apr/22/top-economist-us-coronavirus-response-like-third-world-country-joseph-stiglitz-donald-trumpWebsite: http://pitchforkeconomics.com/Twitter: @PitchforkEconInstagram: @pitchforkeconomicsNick’s twitter: @NickHanauer
