Feb. 23, 2010

The new book Freefall: America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy by Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz offers a stunning indictment of the root causes of the Great Recession. As part of our ongoing series Critical Thinking on Capitalism, he tells Jerome major reforms are needed to fend off the next global financial crisis. Plus, Marianne McCune reports on Zoochilla, a town in southeastern Mexico with a novel solution to boost its economy.
