The 2001 Nobel laureate in economics will be honored at a conference on October 24–25. He will receive a Festschrift, “Economics for an Imperfect World: Essays in Honor of Joseph Stiglitz,” compiled by his students, teachers and coauthors.

Distinguished economists and policymakers from around the world, including George Soros, Jeffrey Sachs and Robert Solow, will address the economic challenges of the new century and focus on lessons learned in the last 25 years. The themes of the conference will reflect Professor Stiglitz’s significant contributions to economic analysis and policy.
