What Have We Learned from Market Design

Alvin E. Roth, the George Gund Professor of Economics and Business Administration at Harvard [...]Business School, discusses market failures and successes using organ transplants and the New York City and Boston school systems as case studies in the 2007 Rosenthal Memorial Lecture.

The Robert Rosenthal Memorial Lecture series was founded in honor of Robert Rosenthal, a longtime member of the College of Arts & Sciences economics faculty. The series brings to campus a prominent economist chosen by economics graduate students, allowing them to interact with the speaker and gain insight into their field.

Hosted by the BU Graduate Economics Association and the Department of Economics on April 27, 2007.
