Economics and Theology with Joe Stiglitz

On the blog of the Institute for New Economic Thinking is a video of a discussion at Union Seminary with Joseph Stiglitz, the Nobel Prize-winning economist, to inaugurate a year-long discussion on Economics and Theology.   Quoting their website: "The event was held on September 19, 2012, and featured a wide-ranging conversation with Stiglitz about the intersection of economics with hope, happiness, death, suffering, values, grace, and evil. Stiglitz was joined in the discussion by Union Theological Seminary President Rev. Dr. Serene Jones, INET Executive Director Rob Johnson, Union Professor of Social Ethics Gary Dorrien, and Betty Sue Flowers, former director of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum and Emeritus Professor at the University of Texas".
