Senator Elizabeth Warren

and Paul Krugman in Conversation


How do the struggles facing the American middle class affect our society and how will they affect our future? Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Paul Krugman, two of the leading thinkers on inequality, engage in a discussion of public policy, economics and the middle class. Recorded Thursday, Sept. 4 at the CUNY Graduate Center, Warren and Krugman address a range of topics, such as consumer safeguards, student loan refinancing, bankruptcy protection, banking controls, minimum wage reform and women’s health care. The conversation is moderated by Janet Gornick, professor of political science and sociology, and Director of the Luxembourg Income Study Center, The Graduate Center, City University of New York.

Elizabeth Warren was elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts in 2012; a former professor at Harvard Law School, she served as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), and later established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under President Barack Obama, before running for office. A Fighting Chance, Warren’s most recent book, was published in April 2014. Paul Krugman is a Nobel Prize-winning economist, New York Times columnist and blogger, and author of, most recently, End This Depression Now!. He is a Distinguished Scholar at the Luxembourg Income Study Center, CUNY Graduate Center, where he will join the faculty in Fall 2015.
