Joseph Stiglitz warns of the dangers of climate change
Show Notes

Nobel-prize winner Joseph Stiglitz will soon be in Australia talking about global poverty and inequality and, of course, the dangers that face us all because of climate change.
Stiglitz, who is the closest thing to a "celebrity economist" the world has, sees climate change as the damnation of capitalism and wonders whether the world's economic system is broken. He says: "Wealth begets power, which begets more wealth".
Stiglitz is coming to Australia to collect the 2018 Sydney Peace Prize and while here will speak at the National Press Club and at the Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne.
