Live at the 92nd Street Y has been showcasing some of the most thought-provoking lectures and entertaining productions for the past decade. This episode, featuring the Nobel Prize-winning economist and The New York Times op-ed columnist Paul Krugman, is another fine example of their inspiring catalogue. Joining Krugman is journalist David Brancaccio, and together the two present a wildly engaging conversation covering such things as the Bernie Madoff scandal, Krugman’s Nobel Prize, and various other topics concerning the current economic climate.
David Brancaccio is host and senior editor of NOW on PBS, public television's award-winning newsmagazine of investigative reporting and in-depth interviews. A broadcaster for 32 years, Brancaccio worked alongside the legendary journalist Bill Moyers at NOW before flying solo beginning in 2005.
