Joseph Stiglitz is an American economist, public policy analyst, and a professor at Columbia University. He is a recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (2001) and the John Bates Clark Medal (1979). He is a former senior vice president and chief economist of the World Bank and is a former member and chairman of the (US president's) Council of Economic Advisers. In 2000, Stiglitz founded the Initiative for Policy Dialogue (IPD), a think tank on international development based at Columbia University. He was the founding chair of the Columbia University's Committee on Global Thought. He also chairs the University of Manchester's Brooks World Poverty Institute and is member of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. In 2009, the President of the United Nations General Assembly appointed Stiglitz as the chairman of the U.N. Commission on Reforms of the International Monetary and Financial System, where he oversaw suggested proposals and commissioned a report on reforming the international monetary and financial system. He served as chair of the international Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress, appointed by President Sarkozy of France, which issued its report in 2010, "Mismeasuring our Lives: Why GDP doesn't add up", and currently serves as co-chair of its successor, the High Level Expert Group on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress. From 2011 to 2014, Stiglitz was president of the International Economic Association (IEA). His latest book, “People, Power, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent”, was published by W.W. Norton & Company in 2019 (Italian edition: Einaudi, 2020).

Friday October 9 — 4:30 PM
Carlos De La Torre is the director of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida. De la Torre directed multiple programs in universities across the United States and Ecuador, including the International Studies program at the University of Kentucky; the Political Studies and Ph.D. program at FLACSO-Ecuador; and the Latin American, Latino and Caribbean Studies program at Northeastern University. De la Torre has pursued two research agendas. At the start of his career, he studied the ambiguous relationship between Latin American populism and democracy, with the goal of understanding the complexities of populist politics in order to strengthen democratic governance. His second area of research examined racism and citizenship in Latin America. Through his research, de la Torre sought to show the workings of racism as an institutionalized system of power and to inform social movement activists on how to eradicate racism to democratize society. De la Torre’s current research relates to global populism. His most recent publications are “The Routledge Handbook of Global Populism”, New York: Routledge Press, 2019; and “Populisms: A Quick Immersion”, New York: Tibidabo editions, 2019.
