Economist, author, and 2005 Nobel Prize winner will meet with students and interested staff and faculty members.

Thursday, May 8th, 2008
4:00 – 5:00 pm / Gould Library Athenaeum

Schelling’s expertise is in the areas of foreign affairs, national security, nuclear strategy, and arms control. He won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics "for having enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis." His book, The Strategy of Conflict, pioneered the study of bargaining and strategic behavior and is considered one of the hundred books that have been most influential in the West since 1945. His economic theories about war were extended in Arms and Influence. He will be the featured convocation speaker on Friday, May 9.
