Economists Stigler and Stiglitz (David Duggan, USA, 12/13/20 7:24 am)

In response to Mendo Henriques (December 12th), I believe he was referring to either George Stigler or Joseph Stiglitz. From the context of his post I can't tell which. Both won the Nobel Prize in Economics (Stigler 1981, Stiglitz 2001).

JE comments:  Great eye as always, David!  Now that I think about it, I never paid much attention to the two "Stigl" practitioners of the Dismal Science.  The latter (Stiglitz) is still living and a full generation younger than the former, who died in 1991.

I think Mendo meant Stiglitz, who is markedly to the left of Stigler from the Chicago School.  But maybe I'm wrong...

  • Joseph Stiglitz (Mendo Henriques, Portugal 12/15/20 3:43 AM)
    I agree with JE that The Donald's movie is as entertaining as a Latino telenovela, if we discount all the pain inflicted by the soon to be ex-president of the US.

    My thanks to David Duggan. I involuntarily created a portmanteau name "Joseph Stiegler." As JE pointed out, I meant Joseph Stiglitz who, fortunately, is still around.

    JE comments:  While Joseph Stiglitz is on our radar, here's his latest (December 8th) opinion piece in the NYT.  He asks, at this critical juncture in US politics, if democracy can be salvaged in the wake of the disruptive Trump era.
