Jump up and down like teenage fangirls and scream till we vomit, coz one of the sexiest brains on the planet is coming to Wellington. Lock up your daughters, it’s Joseph ‘Big Bad Wolf’ Stiglitz!!!
His early four-track demo tape “the theory of markets with asymmetric information” was picked up by EMI, went gold, and won him both hordes of nubile admirers and the Nobel Prize. His collaboration with ‘Wild Bill’ Clinton both brought sexy back to the saxophone and recognised the beneficial role of governments in designing and directing markets. His two most recent albums “Globalization and Its Discontents” and “Making Globalization Work” show a stunning return to form, leading to pounding hearts and fevered brows across the world with his clear description of the limitations of, and alternatives to, the Washington consensus on free market economics.
You can throw your underwear at him in the flesh, at the Michael Fowler centre, Friday, 14th March. I’ll be there, so if you want to join the group swoon then let me know, I’ll be booking tickets on friday.
(Sadly, the Stiglitz vs. IMF cage match has had to be postponed. It seems the IMF are too pussy to front up.)
