NY-AIR Podcast

Welcome to our very first episode of the NY-AIR Podcast. The following is a recording from our Aug 4, 2015 session at the Princeton Club in New York. Our guest was Joseph Stiglitz, who is a winner of the Nobel prize and author of The Great Divide. He is also a professor at Columbia University. In this episode he discusses the growing income disparity in America and the complications it brings for a society as a whole. His views are his own and not in any way a reflection on NY-AIR.
