CFA Society San Francisco is Pleased to Offer Members Special Access 
to the Silk Lectures Featuring Nobel Laureates: Dr. Joe Stiglitz
Sponsored by University of San Francisco 


 

People, Power, and Profits: Capitalism for an Age of Discontent. 

Join us for an evening of enrichment, enjoyment, and socializing with Bay Area professionals and academics with Dr. Joe Stiglitz. Dr. Joe Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate in Economics in 2001 will discuss his new book People, Power, and Profits. Dr. Stiglitz will focus on aspects of the American system that may have led to some of the frustrations of our day. Center stage in this discussion is the increase in market power of firms, which has led to less competition and a greater benefit for firm owners through pricing power and government lobbying.  He will also discuss issues such as globalization and technology that have led to a decline in the wages of many American workers. Professor Stiglitz will also provide some ideas of how we can make things better for the future. There will be a Q&A moderated by USF’s Professor Ludwig Chincarini. 

This is a CFA Society San Francisco member-only event.
