J.E. Stiglitz has a reputation, especially among critical thinkers around the world, as a left-wing critical economist, even critical of capitalism and he actually is worldwide one of the most quoted economic thinkers. His theoretical work in fact deals with a central theme of a critique of capitalism, the theme of poverty and wealth, discussed among critical economists like Stiglitz or Piketti as inequality. And what does Stiglitz write about inequalities – that the critique of an unequal distribution of poverty and wealth is not “inevitably” a critique of capitalism:

„This paper critiques the notion that unfettered inequality is an inevitable consequence of contemporary capitalism, and provides an alternative, new framework for analyzing changes in income and wealth distribution.”

Interesting: the economist seen worldwide as critical of capitalism argues that “unfettered inequality” does not inevitably justify a criticism of capitalism. So what is he, a critic of capitalism or a critic of the critique of capitalism?

The thinkshop will take place on December 3, 2023 at 18.00h CET.
