Live at the 92nd Street Y has been showcasing some of the most thought-provoking lectures and entertaining productions for the past decade. This episode, featuring the Nobel Prize-winning economist and The New York Times op-ed columnist Paul Krugman, is another fine example of their inspiring catalogue. Joining Krugman is journalist David Brancaccio, and together the two present a wildly engaging conversation covering such things as the Bernie Madoff scandal, Krugman’s Nobel Prize, and various other topics concerning the current economic climate.
Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman is an op-ed columnist for The New York Times and the author of the best seller The Conscience of a Liberal. He is one of the founders of the "new trade theory", for which he was awarded the John Bates Clark medal by the American Economic Association. A professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, Krugman has written or edited 20 books and more than 200 papers in professional journals and edited volumes. David Brancaccio is host and senior editor of NOW on PBS, public television's award-winning newsmagazine of investigative reporting and in-depth interviews. A broadcaster for 32 years, Brancaccio worked alongside the legendary journalist Bill Moyers at NOW before flying solo beginning in 2005.
