T inStiglitz co-authored one of his first papers with Michael Rothschild for the Journal of Economic Theory in Henry George theorem[ edit ] Stiglitz made early contributions to a theory of public finance stating that an optimal supply of local public goods can be funded entirely through capture of the land rents generated by those goods when population distributions are optimal.
Furthermore, Stiglitz shows that a single tax on rents is necessary to provide the optimal supply of local public investment. Stiglitz also shows how the theorem could be used to find the optimal size of a city or firm.
It was for this contribution to the theory of information asymmetry that he shared the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics  in "for laying the foundations for the theory of markets with asymmetric information " with George A.
Before the advent of models of imperfect and asymmetric information, the traditional neoclassical economics literature had assumed that markets are efficient except for some limited and well defined market failures. More recent work by Stiglitz and others reversed that presumption, to assert that it is only under exceptional circumstances that markets are efficient.
In other words, they addressed "the problem of determining when tax interventions are Pareto-improving. The approach indicates that such tax interventions almost always exist and that equilibria in situations of imperfect information are rarely constrained Pareto optima.
The real debate today is about finding the right balance between the market and government. They can each complement each other. This balance will differ from time to time and place to place.
In an interview inStiglitz explained further: The preceding claim is based on Stiglitz paper, "Externalities in Economies with Imperfect Information and Incomplete Markets ",  which describes a general methodology to deal with externalities and for calculating optimal corrective taxes in a general equilibrium context.
In the opening remarks for his prize acceptance at Aula Magna Stiglitz said: Problems of information are central to understanding not only market economics but also political economy, and in the last section of this lecture, I explore some of the implications of information imperfections for political processes.

Sarath Rajapatirana (Abstract) Economics theorist par excellence, Joseph Stiglitz provides a wide ranging analysis of globalization, taking into account the interests of poor countries. A report by Gwythian Prins. The EU looks like an empire. It walks like an empire.
It certainly talks like an empire. It treats its subjects like an empire. The former Commission President Mr Barroso said that it was an empire. And empires collapse. Is this one facing that risk?
