Next week there will be two great events relating to the Arrow Lectures and our book series. Both events are free and open to the public:
On Monday, November 17th, Columbia University Faculty House will be hosting a book launch for The Kenneth J. Arrow Series to celebrate the books in the series, including the just-published Moral Hazard in Health Insurance, by Amy Finkelstein. The event will include a roundtable discussion with a remarkable group of economists and scholars, including Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University; Scott Barrett, Columbia University; Patrick Bolton, Columbia University; Bruce C. Greenwald, Columbia University; Geoffrey Heal, Columbia University; Eric Maskin, Harvard University and IAS; Bernard Salanié, Columbia University; José A. Scheinkman, Columbia University; and Joseph E. Stiglitz, Columbia University. This event will be moderated by Jan Svejnar, Columbia SIPA.
The 7th Kenneth J. Arrow Lecture itself will take place the next night and be delivered by Paul Milgrom, Shirley and Leonard Ely Professor of Humanities and Sciences, Stanford University, will focus on prices and resource allocations in computationally challenging environments. Discussants will include Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University; Jay Sethuraman, Columbia University; Joseph Stiglitz, Columbia University.
