Host Bob Edwards talks with Joseph Stiglitz, former chairman of President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors, and winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics. Stiglitz says the roots of today's market woes can be found in the boom years of the 1990's. Back then, companies resisted changing the treatment of executive stock options and many engaged in false accounting.
