Trinity’s Nobel Economists lecture Series, begun in 1984 by 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 Alvin E. Roth of Stanford University. The lecture will be on the evening of Thursday, March 28, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in the Stieren Theater, located in the Ruth Taylor Theater Building. Roth, with his colleague Lloyd S. Shapley, received the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel in 2012 “for the theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design.” For more information about Roth’s work, please read the press release on the award.
