What is the G-20? How do their policies affect me? What can we do about it?
The G-20 promotes policies that put profits first through deregulation, privatization, and free trade. Their agenda has harmed working-class communities in the U.S. and around the world, causing job loss, lower wages, poverty, inequality, and environmental destruction.
As part of a five-event series scheduled around the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh, the Institute for Policy Studies, The Nation Institute, and the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE) are co-sponsoring a panel discussion, featuring Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz.
Other panelists include:
John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation magazine
Tammy Bang Luu, Labor/Community Strategy Center and Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GCJ)
This event will be held in Pittsburgh.
