Tony Atkinson in conversation with Paul Krugman, moderated by Chrystia Freeland

On May 20, 2013, LIS Board President Tony Atkinson and Paul Krugman engaged in a public conversation at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

Professors Atkinson and Krugman – two of the world’s preeminent economists – discussed the complex links between inequality and economic growth, instability, and mobility.

The conversation was moderated by Chrystia Freeland, Managing Director and Editor, Consumer News at Thomson Reuters. The evening was introduced by Graduate Center President William Kelly, and LIS Director Janet Gornick.

The sold-out event attracted a live audience of several hundred and was also live-streamed. The U.S. office of LIS was delighted to co-sponsor this exciting event with the Graduate Center’s Advanced Research Collaborative.
