New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is among the scheduled speakers at a Jan. 31 public forum about the rising political, economic, and social inequality in the United States.
The forum, moderated by Air America Radio host Laura Flanders, will be held in The New School’s Tishman Auditorium in New York City starting at 7 p.m.
Krugman — whose column is syndicated via the New York Times News Service — is also the author or editor of 20 books and a professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University. He’ll be part of a panel that includes people who contributed to the new book “Inequality Matters: The Growing Economic Divide in America and Its Poisonous Consequences.”
