It's a very special episode of "On the Job" this week!
Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz is one of the world's great thinkers. Professor Stiglitz won the 2001 Nobel Prize for his ground-breaking work in economics.
Professor Stiglitz's work in pushing back against neo-liberal free market economic models and arguing for the importance of empowering workers and unions to build a more equitable economy is revered.
He served as an advisor in the Clinton White House, holds a professorship at Columbia University, and was the first person the Greek government called for help when it faced a financial meltdown in 2010.
He is in Australia to talk with Unions, workers and the newly elected Labor government.
Francis sat down with Professor Stiglitz in Melbourne last week.
