After her historic tenure as speaker of the house, Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi joins in conversation with Nobel Prize–winning economist Paul Krugman. Pelosi, the 52nd speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and the first woman to serve as speaker, is the chief architect of generation-defining legislation, including the Affordable Care Act and the American Rescue Plan. She continues to serve as a member of Congress representing San Francisco, which she has done for more than 35 years. She speaks with Krugman, a columnist for The New York Times and bestselling author, who is a distinguished professor of economics and a senior scholar at the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality at the CUNY Graduate Center.
Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality.
