Market Design: Public lecture at Reed College

I'll speak today at Reed College in Portland OR:

Matching Markets and Market Design

Markets and marketplaces, which are ancient human artifacts and ubiquitous modern ones, come in many varieties. Roth will speak about some unusual marketplaces he's helped design, including the National Resident Matching program through which most American doctors get their first jobs, school choice, and kidney exchange.

Alvin Roth is the Craig and Susan McCaw Professor of Economics at Stanford University and the George Gund Professor Emeritus of Economics and Business Administration at Harvard. Roth shared the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for the theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design. His work is in game theory, experimental economics, and market design.

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the economics department.
