Joseph Stiglitz : "The United States economy is unusually cruel"
Alexis Buisson, New York correspondent of the French daily newspaper La Croix, presents C’est ça l’Amerique (“This is America”) a podcast produced by La Croix, in partnership with the news website French Morning and the Alliance program.
Covid 19 has plunged the US into an economic crisis of historic proportions, not seen since the Great Depression. Unemployment has shot up from 3.8% in February – its lowest level in the post-World War II era- to over 14% in April, a record for that time period.
How quickly will the US rebound?
Is it as resilient as President Trump says it is?
We’ve asked those questions, and many more, to Joseph Stiglitz. Among many things, he’s a Nobel Prize recipient in economic sciences, as well as an economics professor at Columbia University.
