Lecture and live webcast on Market design at Stanford GSB, May 3

For my sins, I'll be speaking at the Stanford GSB Spring Reunions...both virtually and literally.

Upcoming Live Webcast

[Photo - GSB Professor Al Roth]Who Gets What: The New Economics of Matchmaking
and Market Design, with Professor Al Roth,
2012 Nobel Laureate
Friday, May 3
5:00 - 6:15 pm (PDT)

Do economists have to be dull theoreticians? Not so for Nobel laureate Al Roth. Al Roth will present examples of his real world applications of market matching and his ground breaking successes with labor markets, school choice, and his life-saving favorite, kidney exchanges. The talk will include a welcome and introduction by Dean Saloner.
Although attending the webcast is complimentary, pre-registration is required.
The webcast will be available from this page at 5:00 pm (PDT), May 3.
