Stiglitz is a strong advocate for infrastructure investment, but expressed concern about backroom negotiations.

"The danger right now is that discussion is going on behind closed doors to support (infrastructure spending), but to get the revenues they're going to do a tax deal with the big corporations," he said. "And so we may get the investment, but the price of that investment will be to let multinationals like Apple off the hook, to pay less taxes while ordinary citizens will have to continue to pay their taxes like we've always done."

Added Stiglitz: "To me, that's a bad deal."
