Trinity's Nobel Economists Lecture Series, begun in 1984 by Professor Emeritus and former E.M. Stevens Distinguished Professor of Economics William Breit, brings some of the most brilliant and influential economists of the post-war era to campus.
Based on the general theme "My Evolution as an Economist," the lectures offer rare autobiographical insights into the Nobel laureates' contributions, the sources and nature of their discoveries, and their growth and development as economists.
The next speaker will be Thomas J. Sargent. The lecture will be on the evening of April 21, 2015 in the Stieren Theater. Dr. Sargent was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2011, along with Christopher A. Sims, "for their empirical research on cause and effect in the macroeconomy." For more information about Dr. Sargent's work, please read the press release on the award.
