At Columbia, Stiglitz co-chairs the Committee on Global Thought and is founder and co-president of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue. His latest book, People, Power, and Profits: Progressive Capitalism for an Age of Discontent, was released in April.
- Professor Philippe Sands QC teaches at University College London and Harvard Law School, is a practising barrister at Matrix Chambers, and the author of East West Street/Retour a Lemberg. He has acted as counsel or arbitrator in more than fifty investor state arbitrations since 1988. His new book, The Ratline: Love Lies and Justice on the Trail of a Nazi Fugitive, will be published next April.
