Distinguished Lecture on Economics in Government: The Private Uses of Public Interests: Incentives and Institutions

Stiglitz, Joseph E.

As a long-time student of the public sector, I welcomed the opportunity to come to Washington as a member of the Council of Economic Advisers and later to become the Chairman of the Council, partly because it gave me an opportunity to study at first hand this immensely important part of our economy and society and to test my ideas against the reality of government in action.
