The Aula Magna at Palazzo Bo hosts the Nobel Lecture by Joseph Eugene Stiglitz, Nobel Prize in Economics 2001 thanks to its contribution to the theory of information asymmetries.
With this Lecture, the American economist and essayist discusses with Antonio Parbonetti, Vice Rector of Organization and Budget, freedom and economics: neoliberalism, the individual, and society.
Commonly held notions of freedom and liberty can be misleading in our complex, integrated society. Advocates of neoliberalism and unfettered markets have long favored the ‘freedom’ of certain entities, especially big corporations and financial institutions, at the expense of the freedom, opportunity and capabilities of many ordinary citizens. To expand the freedoms of the vast majority, we must address the destructive degree of inequality facing us and pursue economic and social systems characterized by greater cooperation and tolerance.
