(Boston, Mass.) – Dr. Paul Streeten, an emeritus professor of economics in the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future at Boston University, will deliver two lectures at the University’s School of Management on October 7 and 14 as part of the Center’s distinguished lecture series. “Technological Nightmares” will explore how today’s technological advances can be one person’s salvation while at the same time, be another’s outrage. Both lectures begin at 6 p.m. and will take place in the auditorium of the Boston University School of Management.
