print interview

An economics professor at Columbia University and winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize for economics, Stiglitz was an informal adviser to some of Obama's economic team. But in this interview he's highly critical of many of the administration's policies, including not targeting the stimulus to help the unemployed and not adequately helping homeowners. This is an edited transcript drawn from two interviews conducted on Dec. 29, 2011 and Feb. 1, 2012 by producers Jim Gilmore and Martin Smith.
