November 8th- Merrick Lecture and Seminar- Pierre-André Chiappori



On November 8th, Pierre-André Chiappori will give the Merrick Lecture (4:00-5:00 pm at the Rotunda) and the Bankard Applied Microeconomics seminar (12:00-1:30 pm at Monroe 120). Pierre-André is E. Rowan and Barbara Steinschneider Professor of Economics at  Columbia University and a Distinguished Fellow at the Becker Friedman Institute of The University of Chicago. You can see his research here 


Among many influential contributions to economics, he is particularly well known for (I)  economics of collective model (roughly, a collective model is one where the economic unit of interest is a collection of individuals, usually from within a household, and not just one individual as we usually assume) and its application to household consumption and intra-household bargaining; (II) economics of marriage and matching markets; and (III) empirical contract theory.  


His Merrick lecture is titled Inequality and Human Capital: A Global View. See the attached flyer. No registration is required for these events.
