“At a time when understanding global politics and economics is more important than ever, Project Syndicate stands out,” said Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in Economics. “While so many media outlets have become more insular, Project Syndicate features leading thinkers, businesspeople, activists, politicians and policymakers from every part of the world, including Shinzo Abe, Francis Fukuyama, Bill and Melinda Gates, Christine Lagarde, Juan Manuel Santos, George Soros, and many others. Often setting the agenda for other news organizations in the process. For concise, accessible, and trenchant insights into the key issues shaping our future, there simply is nothing else like it.”
